Editorial Reviews


"Excellent tratment of relations between the US and China in the 20th century. Especially valuable since the end of the Cold War."--Linda Addo, North Carolina AandT State University

"Comprehensive and well done--a good portrait and balanced account."--R. Owens, Lewis University

"A worthwhile addition to the growing literature on American-East Asian relations and complements the surveys on Sino-American relations by Warren Cohen and Michael Hunt."--Pacifica

"An excellent synthetic work that covers a lot of ground in relatively few pages."--Peter Derrick, Fordham University

"A readable, pithy history of America's post-1990 relations with China....A well-written revisionist outline of Sino-American diplomatic history."--Asian Affairs

"An excellent job of weaving together the various strands of American policies toward China. Well-written and, in fact, easy to understand. It should prove to be a real aid for anyone attempting to understand and evaluate the relationship of these two great powers in the twentieth century."--Thomas M. Ray, Wayland Baptist University

"A very lively account chock-full of good quotes."--Richard L. Wilson, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

"Good overview of our relationship to China in this century."--Dwayne Frank, Cedarville College

"A concise and complete survey which combines summary and analysis in an informative nature- a must for US foreign policy and diplomatic history courses." --Brooks D. Simpson, Wofford College

"A well-balanced study. This should be used in all introductory courses regarding the U.S. and China."--Emmett A. Shea, Worcester State College

Format: Paperback
Schaller's book provides a very detailed, thorough account of relations between the US and China, but he also includes international perspective. In other words, the book is not confined soley to the US and China -- it includes contextual details about Japan, for example. This book provides an almost text-book like amount of chronological detail but is easily readable and reveals much about the motivations of all parties involved. Excellent read.
