Among the novelties: Amit Das Gupta on India's policy, Dai Chaowu on China's policy, and Payal Banerjee on the little known wartime plight of India’s Chinese citizens. A review by Jyotirmoy Banerjee.

Since 1950, the relationship between the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) has been described by Chinese official media as an "unbreakable friendship" that was "always stable." Recent studies on their bilateral relations, however, tell quite a different story. The Sino-North Korean relationship not only repeatedly fell on hard times during the Cold War, the "traditional friendship" actually never really existed. By Tao Chen.

The aim of this blog is to present the history and academic results of one of China’s leading institutions in the field of international history and Cold War studies.

The history of Sino-Soviet borders is inextricably linked to the history of Sino-Soviet relations, domestic politics in both countries and strategic considerations in Moscow and Beijing. Therefore, the Sino-Soviet negotiations present an important case study for conflict moderation and for the way in which both sides managed to prevent war, conducted negotiations and maintained peace despite profound ideological, political and strategic differences. By Alsu Tagirova.

In the second decade of the 21st century China has emerged as the most vibrant center of Cold War studies in the world. From the international perspective, more and more scholars in the West are becoming interested in researching China’s Cold War experiences.

If we consider contemporary history to be the prehistory of the present day, inquiring into the end of the Cold War must take into account not only Europe and North America but to a greater extent Asia, because this is where processes began that have deeply influenced today's global (dis-)order and continue to do so. By Hermann Wentker.
