This article traces the evolution of the foreign policy of the People's Republic of China in a historical perspective, analyses the principal imperatives that have shaped the country's current independent policy of peace, and looks into its underlying rationales. Drawing upon a wealth of primary sources, the essay presents a distinctive Chinese view of the current international scene as well as of the international behaviour of the country, which is opening up to the outside world and restructuring its economy in an all-out drive for development.
