A Great Wall

Author:   

Description for A GREAT WALL: SIX PRESIDENTS AND CHINA: AN INVESTIGATIVE HISTORY by Patrick Tyler:

A GREAT WALL is the definitive work on U.S.-China relations since the Cold War. Veteran journalist Patrick Tyler utilizes brilliant original reporting from his years in China; interviews with presidents, secretaries of state, Chinese officials, and other key leaders; and 15,000 pages of newly declassified documents to chart the history of this fragile friendship over the last three decades, illuminating a relationship usually shrouded in secrecy, miscommunication, rivalry, fondness, and fear.Through vivid scenes and narrative Tyler captures the epic struggle by American and Chinese Leaders over three decades to come to terms with each other, sworn enemies since Chinese troops overran the mainland in 1949 and bitterly divided over the fate of Taiwan. Unlike most foreign correspondents, Tyler is an investigative journalist by training, and it shows in A Great Wall's wealth of never-before-disclosed revelations. The result is a book that will make front-page news and receive enormous review attention.

Will China be a threat or a partner in the future? As China emerges onto the world stage and into the global marketplace, A Great Wall will be an essential book for anyone interested in the shifting dynamics of post-Cold War geopolitics.
