This vol. documents the lead up to the initial Kissinger visit to Beijing in July 1971, his next visit in Oct. 1971, and President Nixons historic visit of Feb. 1972. Through a variety of sources telegrams, memoranda, memoranda of conversation, telephone conversations, transcripts of Presidential tape recordings, and briefing books with extensive handwritten annotation by Nixon the vol. documents how the President wanted Kissinger initially to engage the Chinese. Kissingers conversations in Beijing are covered in detail and the excitement that he felt during this first trip clearly comes through the official record and show that Kissinger believed he had a special bond with Chinese Premier Chou En-lai. The Oct. 1971 trip by Kissinger is also covered in detail with similar documentation. The vol. contains extensive documentation on President Nixons Feb. 1972 trip and the issuing of the Shanghai Communiqu. After the Nixon visit, the U.S. sought to regularize its contacts with the Peoples Republic of China (PRC), and this process is documented in the last chapter on China that includes documentation on Kissingers June 1972 visit to Beijing. This is a print on demand report.
