In February 1972 President Nixon arrived in Beijing for what Chairman Mao Zedong called the "week that changed the world." Using recently declassified sources from American, Chinese, European, and Soviet archives, Chris Tudda's A Cold War Turning Point reveals new details about the relationship forged by Nixon's administration and the Chinese government that dramatically altered the trajectory of the Cold War.
The first book to use the Nixon tapes and Kissinger Telephone Conversations to illustrate the complexity of early Sino-U.S. relations, Tudda's thorough and illuminating research provides a multi-archival examination of this critical moment in twentieth-century international relations.
