Zhang probably exaggerates the significance of the economic embargo. as a factor in leading to the breakdown of the Sino-Soviet alliance. That union of unequal com- rades fell victim to a multiplicity of intra-alliance ills in addition to the external eco- nomic pressures that Washington orchestrated. It is difficult to share Zhang's judg- ment that the embargo was successful when, as his own analysis demonstrates, it so quickly fell apart. The author devotes excessive attention to declarative statements of policy and often provides lengthy summaries of official documents that read more like the notebook of a scholar than a polished analysis, but these are minor and excusable lapses in a study that fills an important gap in the historiography of the economic Cold War.
