US and China Relations: Lecture II

Chase Untermeyer

The second lecture in this series will be on US relations with communist China starting with Mao Zedong’s assumption of power in 1949. It will tell of direct conflict between the two nations during the Korean War and how the specter of “losing China” haunted US policymakers on Vietnam. Ambassador Untermeyer concludes with the bold and breathtaking opening to China in 1971 engineered by President Richard Nixon and his national security advisor, Henry Kissinger.
