About the Book

Forty years ago, China and the US surmounted obstacles, reconciled differences, and sought cooperation that resulted in changed lives of countless Chinese and Americans, as well as the world order. This book tracks the experiences, records the testimonies, of a bunch of witnesses and observers of the vicissitudes of Sino-US relations and tells the stories of the promoters and beneficiaries of bilateral cooperation.

The 40 interviewees, either diplomats, experts or scholars in the political and academic circles of both countries (20 Chinese and 20 Americans), who have witnessed the storms of Sino-US diplomacy, share with readers their first-hand knowledge and insight with regard to promoting bilateral cooperation and exchange by revealing the rarely known ins and outs of history.
