Abstract:

Chinas conflict and cooperative behavior was examined from the perspective of Rummels field theory which states that the behavior of one nation toward another is a linear transformation of their differences from each other on their attributes. The period of study included sixteen years, 1950- 1965. Chinas behavior toward all sovereign nations was measured with seventeen selected variables at five selected time points, 1950, 1955, 1960, 1963, and 1965. Then the data were factor analyzed with a technique which treated all dyads, including dyads consisting of the same actor and object for different years as separate dyads, in one matrix. Six cooperative-type and two conflict- type behavioral patterns were identified.
