China and the United States: What Next? Headline Series.
Whiting, Allen S.
This resource booklet discusses U.S. foreign policy with China and contains questions to help secondary teachers stimulate classroom discussion. The author, who was consultant to Secretary of State Kissinger on China policy 1969-1973, argues that Washington's failure to establish full diplomatic relations with Peking is damaging United States-Sino detente. Considerable evidence exists, he asserts, that the pace of normalization has fallen far short of what Peking had anticipated. In 1975 intimations of Chinese irritation became apparent. They were first voiced in private, unofficial conversations and then openly expressed on the eve of President Ford's visit in December 1975. Chapter titles are: (1) Confrontation to Detente; (2) The Shanghai Communique and the Fruits of Dentente; (3) The Balance Sheet and Unfinished Business; (4) The Tight Little Island; (5) The Japanese Formula; (6) Why Normalize Sino-American Relations; and (7) Talking It Over. Discussion questions and reading references are also included. (Author/RM)
