This study examines China's complicated history with US-led nonproliferation efforts under the context of the late 1970s US-British-Soviet Comprehensive Test Ban treaty negotiations. This study also covers the liberal-conservative debate within the Carter Administration regarding the controversial relations between a nuclear test ban and US national security.

Sheng Peng is a visiting scholar at the Sigur Center for Asian Studies, and a current DPhil History candidate at St Antony's College, University of Oxford. His research focuses on the intellectual traditions of US foreign policy, US-China security relations during the late 1970s, and US nonproliferation policy during the Cold War.
