Napoleon Bonaparte warned the West one hundred and fifty years ago against meddling with China. China, he argued, was a sleeping dragon that had best be left to slumber, lest it destroy those who awakened it. The empire seekers who came after Napoleon disregarded his advice and today we must deal with the aroused dragon. It is still too early to tell whether or not Napoleon was right in his forebodings, for China is presently undergoing a period of great change and uncertainty. Her continued hostility towards the Soviet Union is perfect of this fact.
