Sino-American Economic Relations, 1944-1949

Sino-American Economic Relations, 1944-1949

by C. X. George Wei
     
 

The economic relationship between the U.S. and China during the 1940s has long been neglected, with few scholarly works focusing on the period. This era was overshadowed by the political and diplomatic changes during and after the failure of the Nationalists in 1949. Without a close and insightful look into the reconstruction of China with American involvement

Overview

The economic relationship between the U.S. and China during the 1940s has long been neglected, with few scholarly works focusing on the period. This era was overshadowed by the political and diplomatic changes during and after the failure of the Nationalists in 1949. Without a close and insightful look into the reconstruction of China with American involvement during the late 1940s, one cannot identify the problems which led to the Nationalists' failure, nor can one answer the questions dealing with the impact of American economic policy toward China during that time.

Editorial Reviews

Wei (history, Whitman College) examines Sino-American cooperation and conflict resulting from different interests, mentalities, and economic strategies during the period from 1944 to 1949. The volume's seven chapters analyze China's postwar reconstruction policy making; America's postwar economic policy toward China; UNRRA and CNRRA; the negotiations of the Sin o-American Commercial Treaty; the practice of American capitalist economic liberalism in China; American economic policy toward China; and American approaches toward China in conflict.
