While Kenneth T. Young's Negotiating with the Chinese Communist (p. 1415) focussed on the frustrations involved in the course of the ambassadorial conferences held at Warsaw between representatives of the U.S. and China, Mr. Lall's study concentrates on the protracted negotiations that were held at Geneva in 1961-1962 on the question of Laos. The importance of this parley goes beyond its fairly stable results; it is also significant because it is the only international agreement which has been jointly signed by the U.S. and China at the foreign minister's level. Mr. Lall, formerly a high official in the Indian diplomatic service and now an American academician specializing in Asian affairs, participated in the Geneva Conference. From this vantage point, he tells what happened there and what were the bitter issues debated in secret and unpublicized meetings. Using the Laotian example as well as Chinese diplomatic practices in other conference contexts, he analyzes Peiping's theory of international relations and its conduct. In this area, one of the more valuable studies to appear. (Kirkus Reviews)
