Country, Conscience and Caviar: A Diplomat's Journey in the Company of History Hardcover – November, 1993
From Library Journal
Jenkins enjoyed a great reputation as the premier American political authority on China. Nicknamed "Mr. China," he served as a senior inspector of the State Department Foreign Service and on the National Security Council Senior Staff. His ability to foresee the future of Chinese-American relations cast him in a key role in the historical mission of Nixon's visit to China. He was Kissinger's right-hand man, with ultimate responsibility for preparing the secret "Talking Papers," which provided guidelines in negotiations with China. Always enticing, his memoir captures history in the making and reveals the personal motives behind the public actions of many prominent figures. Jenkins's writing exhibits an artful mastery of language that commands one's attention to nuances of wording and is consistently engrossing. Highly recommended.
