Description
In the past sixty years, relations between China and the United States have fluctuated wildly. Such divisive issues as human rights, the future of Tibet and Taiwan, trade imbalances, and illegal immigration have fueled intense debate over how the United States should deal with the most populous nation in the world.

Drawing upon the oral histories created by the Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training, Nancy Bernkopf Tucker brings together a wide range of interviews with key players in the making and executing of U.S. policy toward China since World War II. Historical events such as Nixon's trip to China, the Tiananmen Massacre, and the recurring Taiwan Strait crises come to life as never before. Portraits of the essential personalities in Sino-American relations emerge from the pages of China Confidential, including Mao Zedong, Henry Kissinger, Zhou Enlai, Ronald Reagan, Chiang Kai-shek, Chiang Ching-kuo, and Lee Teng-hui.

This rich array of interviews provides the context for understanding the otherwise baffling diplomatic interaction between the United States and China, shedding light on the circumstances under which difficult and crucial decisions were reached and revealing the background and biases of the people who made and carried out those policies.
