Overview

This study provides the first detailed analysis of the role the alliance with Nationalist China played in U.S. strategy to contain first the Sino-Soviet alliance and then China during the 1950s and 1960s. It surveys the important political, psychological, and military roles played by Nationalist China in the twenty-year long "political war" waged between the United States and the People's Republic of China. This book is the first forthright affirmation of the value of the U.S. relationship with Nationalist China to appear in the academic literature in many years, going against a dominant academic interpretation that the link was a colossal blunder for the United States.
