About this Item

Still probably the best overall account of one of the most longreaching blunders in the history of American foreign policy, the consequences of which reverberate to this day, despite the total changes in political context. In this case, a politicized Washington establishment persecuted and punished American China experts on the ground when they reported unwelcome truths. This is an immensely readable and well-researched account of the shameful treatment of an eminent band of dedicated foreign service officers who reported correctly what they saw in China and were dismissed and sent packing by ideological political scapegoating in Washington. This absorbing account is still highly relevant and instructive, as the tendency of domestic politicians and ideologues to punish people who disagree with their views is still alive and well. Copies of this excellent volume are more likely to be found in tatters than in this F/F condition. This copy is in Fine/Fine condition, with only a closed tear on the rear of the DJ.
