Deng Xiaoping's Long War

This chapter presents an overview of China's involvement in Vietnam to lay a foundation for a further analysis of the Sino-Vietnamese conflict in a historical context. Focusing on the 1960s and 1970s, it discusses the distrust and suspicion between the Chinese and the Vietnamese that may have been a reflection of an undercurrent of tension between Beijing and Hanoi during the wars against France and the United States. After many years of committing China's resources to Hanoi's war effort, the Chinese had created for themselves a new enemy, as the two countries later engaged in a conflict lasting more than a decade.
