Burma or Myanmar? the struggle for national identity ( )
9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Burma, also known as Myanmar, strategically located between China and India, is one of the largest and most richly endowed states in Southeast Asia. Yet it remains both economically and politically underdeveloped. Why is this so? We argue that much of the reason has to do with an ongoing struggle for national identity. This struggle involves not only whether the state should be authoritarian or democratic, but how Burma's myriad ethnic minorities should be accommodated within it, what external reference national reference groups the country should identify and align with, and how it should mov

Liu Shao-chʻi and the Chinese cultural revolution : the politics of mass criticism by Lowell Dittmer( Book )
16 editions published between 1971 and 1974 in English and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Riding a wave of criticism unprecedented in intensity or scope. China's Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution represented an epoch-making "struggle between the lines" to determine the direction of national development at a critical transition point. Leader of the triumphant "proletarian revolutionary line" was Mao Tse-Tung; leader of the vanguished "bourgeois reactionary line" was erstwhile Chief of State Liu Shao-ch'i, a prominent Communist theorist and organizer who had served as Mao's "close comrade-in-arms: for more than twenty years and was his designed successor. ... Mr. Ditmer illuminates the policy-making process of a revolutionary state facing diverging exigencies of economic modernization and political development."

Informal politics in East Asia ( Book )
8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is a pioneering effort to delineate the various forms of informal politics within different East Asian political cultures and to develop some common theoretical principles for understanding how they work. Featured here are contributions by political scientists specializing in the regions of China, Taiwan, Japan, the Korean peninsula, and Vietnam. The common thread across these political cultures is a Confucian legacy that emphasizes personal relationships and reciprocity. The authors apply to this dynamic region the classic core questions of politics: Who gets what, when, how, and at whose expense?"--Jacket

China, the developing world, and the new global dynamic by Lowell Dittmer( Book )
8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With China's rise as a major player in international affairs, how have its policies toward developing countries changed? And how do those policies now fit with its overall foreign policy goals? This timely new book explores the complexities of China's evolving relationship with the developing world. The authors first examine the political and economic implications of China's efforts to be seen as a responsible great power. A series of comprehensive regional chapters then showcase a quid pro quo relationship - variously involving crucial raw materials, energy, and consumers on the one hand and infrastructure development, aid, and security on the other. The concluding chapter illuminates China's search for national identity in the context of widespread suspicions of its strategic motives. The result is a thorough, yet accessible, view of an increasingly important topic in global affairs. This book explores the complexities of China's evolving relationship with the developing world, including countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America."--Publisher's description

Learning and the reform of Chinese foreign policy by Lowell Dittmer( Book )
6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume looks at China's foreign policy from the perspective of learning theory, a relatively new approach to foreign policy analysis based on social psychology. It begins by attempting to conceptualize China's distinctive approach to policy learning, and then proceeds with a tentative periodization of China's learning experience from 1979 to 1999. It concludes that Chinese foreign policy learning has exhibited a certain continuity since the founding of the People's Republic, with learning and teaching structured to alternate with and complement each other
