Maxime Rodinson presents the classic account of this relationship, in a history that is balanced and concise yet full of insight.

This is an important book that undercuts the tendency to divide the world into East and West and to attribute essential characteristics to each. The book is divided into two parts: the first is by far the most interesting and useful. part two is a rather uninteresting and dated slog through ideological and intellectual debates of the 1960s-1980s.
