understanding nixon's opening of china. the substance of what the documents have to tell us is unsurprising, relations between china and the soviet union in the early 1970's were dismal. what is impressive however is the intensity and frequency with which that point is made. in the pdb's of the 1969 and 1970, the cleavage between the soviet union and china appears not as a distant sideshow, but as the defining feature of world politics. that fact has important implications of how historians understand nixon's choices. right alongside the pdb's nixon's engagement with beijing may be less original than many historians render it. contextualized, the famous china opening may appear more a response to changes that were already underway in that international system than the revolutionary innovation that created new realities and changed the course of the cold war. in this case, then, the pdb's may dampen the luster of nixon's accomplishments, but in other cases they help to chasten and refrain his critics. here laos and cambodia are suggestive cases. in critical accounts these countr
