This vol. is organized chronologically. It conveys the shift in control over U.S. China policy from the White House to the Dept. of State as a result of the Watergate crisis, the appointment of Henry Kissinger as Secretary of State, the resignation of Richard Nixon as President, and Gerald Fords request that Kissinger relinquish his position as Advisor to the President for National Security Affairs. The chapters integrate documents about U.S. relations with the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) and Taiwan, reflecting the fact that the former government received much more attention from high-level American policymakers than did the latter. The central theme of the vol. is the effort to strengthen and formalize the PRCU.S. relationship, which had been established during 1971 and 1972 after decades of bitter estrangement, and the concurrent disestablishment of formal diplomatic relations with Taiwan, a task that remained unfinished at the end of the Ford Admin. The primary means used to improve relations during these years were long conversations between U.S. and PRC leaders, which were supposed to initiate but generally substituted for a more developed and institutionalized relationship. This is a print on demand report.
