United States Actions Toward China Since World War II: Evolution of a Policy? Teacher and Student Manuals.
Gorman, Ira; Meister, Geraldine
A study of American-Chinese relations in the period 1944-1966, this unit for high school students focuses on a number of problems which American policy-makers have had to confront in this period. These problems include the liquidation of Japanese power, the Communist-Nationalist schisms and the rise of the Communists to power, the Korean War, the Quemoy-Matsu crisis, and the question of recognition. The student is asked what the proper goals of foreign policy are, and at the conclusion of the unit he should be able to make some valid generalizations about the dilemmas inherent both in the shaping and executing of policy.
