Sino-Indian Border War, 1962

China and India fought a brief war in late 1962 over disputed territories in the Himalayas, but the conflict's consequences for China's relations with South Asia and the Soviet Union far exceeded its short duration. This collection includes Chinese, Indian, and Soviet records on the border dispute, the war, and the war's aftermath. For the broader context of China's foreign policy toward India and South Asia during the Cold War, see the Digital Archive collection China and South Asia.
