About Face: The China Decision and Its Consequences
About Face: The China Decision and Its Consequences
Edited by John Tierney, Jr.
Arlington House, 1979, 444 pp.

A well-edited collection of articles, essays and speeches deploring the withdrawal of U.S. recognition of Taiwan and the abrogation of the 1954 mutual defense treaty. Some of the pieces-Senator Barry Goldwater's essay on the constitutional and historical aspects of treaty abrogation, for example-are quite substantial.
