The cardinal aim of this thesis is to appraise the considerable shifts in Chinese foreign policy in the 1970s. It attempts to illuminate the inextricable linkages between China's domestic politics and her external behaviour. The analysis pays special attention to China's relationship with the superpowers--the United States and the Soviet Union. In addition China's Third World policy is assessed in the light of the salient transformations in her overall global policy. While the various factors impacting on China's foreign policy processes in the decade under study are discussed in this thesis, it is my submission that the phenomenal changes in Chinese foreign policy arose logically from the parallel transformations in China's domestic politics after the Cultural Revolution.
