Collateral Damage

This chapter concludes that the Sino-Soviet dispute and the termination of their alliance were major developments in the international relations of the Cold War. They form a key component in any account of why the Soviet-led communist vision of international order was ultimately unsuccessful in its competition with the alternative vision led by the United States. Despite its manifest importance, the multiple consequences associated with the termination of the Sino-Soviet alliance have not been sufficiently explored in the literature. This book, however, has sought to make some headway in filling this gap by exploring one consequence of the termination of the Sino-Soviet alliance, namely, its effect on the Sino-Vietnamese alliance.
