In CWIHP Working Paper No. 67, "Ambivalent Alliance: Chinese Policy towards Indonesia, 1960-1965," Taomo Zhou argues that China and Indonesia enjoyed a remarkably cordial quasi-alliance with one another during the first half of the 1960s, and yet the relationship was beset by domestic social resistance, exemplified by two waves of anti-Chinese protests in Indonesia. Filling in the gaps in this important but understudied period, Zhou challenges the existing nation-state-centered narratives of China’s Cold War experience by combining top-down geopolitical analysis with bottom-up processes, and tracing diplomacy in practice and migration on the ground.
