"Separatism's Final Country"

Journal Article, Foreign Affairs, issue 4, volume 87

By Richard N. Rosecrance, Adjunct Professor; International Security Program; Director, Project on U.S.-China Relations and Arthur A. Stein

By Richard N. Rosecrance, Adjunct Professor; International Security Program; Director, Project on U.S.-China Relations and Chuck Freilich, Senior Fellow, International Security Program
