China and America: The Search for a New Relationship

Edited by William J. Barnds

New York University Press, 1977, 254 pp.

The greatest merit of this unusually strong collection of policy-relevant essays is that it offers a variety of formulae to meet the need for normalizing U.S.-Peking relations without abandoning Taiwan. On this and other issues involved in improving U.S. relations with China, this volume should be read in conjunction with "Normalization of Relations with the People's Republic of China: Practical Implications," hearings before the Subcommittee on Asian and Pacific Affairs of the Committee on International Relations, 95th Congress, Sept./Oct. 1977, obtainable from the U.S. Government Printing Office.
