About This Book

This book examines how two of the world's most populous countries interacted between 1945 and 1967, when the concept of citizenship was contested, political loyalty was in question, identity was fluid, and the boundaries of political mobilization were blurred. Based on evidence from newly declassified documents from the Chinese Foreign Ministry Archives and oral history interviews, Zhou argues that migration and the political activism of the ethnic Chinese in Indonesia were important historical forces in the making of governmental relations between Beijing and Jakarta after World War II. She highlights the agency and autonomy of individuals whose life experiences were shaped by - but also helped shape - the trajectory of bilateral diplomacy.
