"The United States Relations with Nationalist China" is an attempt to study the people and events of the years 1949 to 1955 in an orderly and comprehensible manner. The years immediately after the Second World War were the unsteady foundations of a rapidly changing diplomacy in the Far East. The surrender of Japan and the American occupation focused the world's attention upon this part of the world. Nationalism was becoming a rising influence. Countries formerly controlled by Japan were not about to return to a colonial rule. It was an abrupt period of dynamic change. Men, ideas, traditions, and ideologies were becoming highly important in probably, one of the most confusing periods of American diplomacy.
