Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Richard Nixon’s 1972 visit to Beijing to open relations with Communist China was both a Cold War milestone and compelling political theater. Diplomatic historian MacMillan…gives a lively account of the pomp and protocol surrounding the trip…The author fills in the background with colorful, incisive biographical sketches and a lucid history of Sino-American relations…she turns a potentially dry diplomatic story into a fascinating study in high-wire diplomacy, full of intrigue and drama.” Publishers Weekly
