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.Nancy Bernkopf Tucker brings together a wide range of interviews on these and other issues, recorded by the Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training, with key players in the making and execution of U.S. policy towards China since World War II. Historical events usch as Nixon's trip to China, the Tiananmen Massacre, and the recurring Taiwan Straits 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.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This book is not for laymen. It can be confusing, since it is a collection of recollections of many who have been involved in US-China relations. Probably it is not a good idea to cite the book, because memories are not reliable and typos are visible.

The fact that I could not put it down surprised me, not only because this barely happened to me, but because the law of diminishing returns should apply to me, a person who is rather familiar with the subject. The book is special in several ways. It spans more than half a century; involves many different people; their recounts are genuine and idiosyncratic, partly because they did not expect them to be published at least for a while. It is history but reads like a story.

Having served in the State Dept. in Shanghai from 1947 thru 1950
and in Taiwan for 15 years and elsewhere in Asia thru 1976 and
knowing most of those providing the oral histories for this book as well as many of the Chinese principals, I am appalled by the poor proofreading and editing which permited many, many factual inaccuracies to slip through. Also, many of the quoted oral statements are surprisingly superficial and fallacious. Therefore, this book makes very dangerous reading for today's Asian and China scholars since it purports to be the real inside
story straight from the horses mouths whereas its errors can only
generate incorrect history.
If the book is read with this caveat, it does provide very useful background insights for this most important part of 20th. Century experience as well as of the complexities nations face in developing and administering foreign policy. The book is well
laid out and gives a great amount of background information but
the reader should retain a healthy skepticism and draw his own
conclusions realizing that he is reading other's opinions, many
of them recollections of events and years long gone by.

This book is a comprehensive review of Sino-American relations from the birth of the PRC to the end of Clinton's first term. From early controversies during the relationship, such as the expulsion of American diplomats in NE China in 1949 and America's involvement in the Chinese Civil War, to more recent crisises such as the 1996 Taiwan Strait missle exercises, this book reviews the dynamics of the Sino-American relationship and how individual diplomats and statesmen made such crucial differences in the conduct of the relationship. Kissenger and then Brzezinski's roles were especially important and the author explores the personal nature of how diplomacy was conducted, include how both men, who were Nationa Security Advisor to their respective presidents, outmanuevered their Secretary of State and the State Department. A very good read and overview of an important topic.
