From the Publisher"[T]here is no other comprehensive treatment of Kennedy's China policy, Kochavi's is a welome addition. It covers Kennedy's thinking and leadership style, probes his team's handling of the China policy within international and domestic contexts, and offers a succinct, multi-level appraisal of his administration's performance and policy. . . . [T]his study illuminates our understanding of US-China policy and the decision making process of the Kennedy administration. It shows that the New Frontiersmen of Camelot were not always at their best and brightest, at least when it came to formulating a new, effective China policy in the Cold War years."
Journal of Third World Studies
"This first book-length analysis of John F. Kennedy's China policy is a timely and judicious contribution to the literature."
Journal of American History
"[T]his is a very useful book, one which does an excellent job of summarizing the existing literature as written by American and British specialists. . . . Kochavi has, at the same time, uncovered fresh materials from the archival records, managing to advance just a little the struggle to open the vaults at the John F. Kennedy Library for serious analysis and evaluation. . . . [A] highly readable book."
