<p>The article summarizes computer science developments from their inception in the People's Republic of china in 1956, through three decades (1956-1985) of PRC computer science research and development progress. The article identifies the PRC's critical turn to the West after 1972, and it describes and analyzes the resulting process by which computer-related technology transfer from the West then occurred. The PRC, as a developing country, is analyzed as a very large unique environment in which modern computer science is being nourished and implemented.</p>
