Full Description


From the founding of the People's Republic in 1949 up to the late 1970's with occasional exceptions, readers, listeners and viewers got little news directly from the most populous country on earth. The fault cut both ways: China had retreated into isolationism and xenophobia, while the U.S. had sought to weaken and ostracize the Chinese Communists. Thus along with the death and destruction caused by hostilities in Korea and Vietnam and the missed opportunities and damaged reputations caused by the Cold War, another casualty of the period was the U.S. public's access to firsthand information about China.
