The new second edition is fully revised and brought up to date to reflect the changes in U.S.-Chinese relations that came with the Carter, Reagan, and early Bush administrations, as well as the "Second Chinese Revolution" initiated by Deng Xiaoping. It includes entirely new chapters on the Nixon years, the process of normalizing relations under Carter, the tensions caused by Reagan's anti-communist rhetoric, the status of Taiwan, and the impact of the dramatic post-Mao reforms in Chinese society. The new edition also analyzes current Sino-American relations in the context of the emerging economic and strategic significance of the Pacific Basin and China's domestic turmoil.
