China: the people's middle kingdom and the U.S.A by John King Fairbank( Book )

11 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 1,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public discussion of our China policy in recent months has emphasized the need for a historical view of the ancient "Middle Kingdom" (the Chinese name for China) and its modern revolution. Fairbank has been a leading witness before Congressional groups such as Senator Fulbright's Committee on Foreign Relations, where his testimony received worldwide attention. This volume presents the major themes of his testimony more fully by bringing together essays first published in various national journals, mainly in 1966. The three parts of this book--"China's Revolution in the Light of Her Past," "The Taiwan Problem," and "Communist China and American Policy"--All bring a knowledge of China's long tradition to bear upon her present crisis. China's past still provides the main repertory of themes and styles, assumptions and methods, upon which her leaders draw in trying to meet their problems. Mao and his party are both circumscribed and inspired by the history of their Middle Kingdom. Although this history is by no means the sole determinant of their actions, it is the specific factor least well known, and therefore most illuminating, to Americans. The importance and timeliness of these essays, the urgency of their subject matter, are plain enough. As Fairbank says, "We have to face the fact that the Chinese quarter of mankind live on the other side of a cultural gap, and our effort to bridge this gap in the next decade may make us or break us."

China watch by John King Fairbank( Book )

31 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fairbank provides an overview of revolutionary China and Chinese-American relations over the last 15 years. He distinguishes two major motifs in recent Chinese-American connections: the American expectation of highly profitable trade and investment, and the deep-rooted missionary impulse to give the Chinese the best of American culture, which includes efforts to promote human rights. Among the topics Fairbank analyzes are: the cultural revolution in China; the nation's struggle to enter the modern world with its own cultural identity intact and its communist party in power; Mao Tse-tung's China; the Nixon trip to Peking; and the resumption of Chinese-American relations in 1979.
