Dissertation: A Study of Sino-Soviet Allied Relation: 1945 1957 Introduction After the triumph over fascism, peace didn t come to China immediately only gradually, in carefully measured steps. A victory in the of World War II brought a brief but embarrassing silence ensued in China. The battle between Chiang Kai-Shek s Kuomintang (KMT) and Mao Zedong s Communist Party of China (CPC) was inevitable. It was not only a straight fight between Chiang and Mao but also a battle between their ally, the United States and the Soviet Union. However, as the victory of War War II, some victorious nations, especially the Soviet Union and the United States, both desired to rebuild and adjust the post-war international order, and to modify their foreign policy to achieve that goal. Therefore, the allied relationships between them became extraordinarily tangled and complicated. Research on Sino Soviet relations is one of the important parts of Cold War studies, as it is not only decided the contemporary development of communist countries, but also more or less influenced the results of the Cold War, and that encourages me to understand the relationship between China and Soviet after World War II. From the civil war between KMT and CPC erupted at 1946 until the People s Republic of China founded by CPC, the Soviet s attitude toward CPC changed from one extreme to the other extreme. (NEED TO EXPLIAN)On the other hand, after World War II, Mao didn t want to build an alliance relation with the Soviets but with the USA. So what happened during that time would be the first question for this dissertation to answer. (FORMUALTE THIS AS A SPECIFIC QUESTION)With more original files, literature and memoirs having been released by governments helped the study of Sino Soviet relations going to deeper level. Many scholars argued about what are the essential reasons of Sino Soviet alliance in different theoretical framework. The aim of this dissertation is to understand and evaluate the Sino Soviet allied relationship from 1945 to 1957. My research question therefore comes up as: was the alliance based on the same political ideology or their own national interests? In order to answer this question, different International Relation theories framework will be used in this dissertation, such as Ideology theory, National Interest and Structural Realism. And it will be carried out in one method, the secondary literature sources. The main literature source is Zhihua Shen s History of Sino Soviet Relations . The others literature sources searched through Academic Search Complete, International Bibliography of the Social Sciences and Solo. 3) You will also need a brief methodology section which will just say that you gathered data for the analysis based on secondary sources and the vast scholarly literature which exists on Sino-Soviet relations. )  Z, Shen.
