Example text

Even if the CCP leadership was able to protect most of the top Chinese scientists, the brutal and long disruption provoked by the Cultural Revolution in the universities and scientific community was not helping China to catch up. As soon as the opportunity to break its isolation arose, Mao and Zhou took it, even if it meant for Mao a cynical U-turn in internal politics. In 1969, at the height of the Cultural Revolution, while official CCP propaganda targeted US imperialism as one of the main threats against ‘socialism’, the Chinese leadership was secretly negotiating their rapprochement with the US through Pakistan (Pollack, 1989).
