The Struggle to Save the Soviet Economy

China and the USSR had been stark ideological opponents throughout much of the Cold War as they feuded over the meaning of Marxism-Leninism. In the early 1980s, however, their relationship rapidly changed as Soviet intellectuals realized that Deng Xiaoping was transforming China’s economy. This chapter examines Soviet economists and analysts who visited China, studied the changes underway, and reported on China’s new policies to top Soviet leaders.

Keywords:   Mao Zedong, Soviet Union, Perestroika, Deng Xiaoping
