Dangerous strait the U.S.--Taiwan--China crisis ( )
13 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 1,668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Today the most dangerous place on earth is arguably the Taiwan Strait, where a war between the United States and China could erupt out of miscalculation, misunderstanding, or accident. How and to what degree Taiwan pursues its own national identity will have profound ramifications in its relationship with China as well as in relations between China and the United States. Events late in 2004 demonstrated the volatility of the situation, as Taiwan's legislative elections unexpectedly preserved a slim majority for supporters of closer relations with China. Beijing, nevertheless, threatened to pass an anti-secession law, apt to revitalize pro-independence forces in Taiwan - and make war more likely. Taking change as a central theme, these essays by prominent scholars and practitioners in the arena of U.S.-Taiwan-Chinese relations combine historical context with timely analysis of an accelerating crisis. The book clarifies historical developments, examines myths about past and present policies, and assesses issues facing contemporary policymakers

The China threat memories, myths, and realities in the 1950s by Nancy Bernkopf Tucker( )
10 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nancy Bernkopf Tucker confronts the coldest period of the cold war-the moment in which personality, American political culture, public opinion, and high politics came together to define the Eisenhower Administration's policy toward China. A sophisticated, multidimensional account based on prodigious, cutting edge research, this volume convincingly portrays Eisenhower's private belief that close relations between the United States and the People's Republic of China were inevitable and that careful consideration of the PRC should constitute a critical part of American diplomacy.

Lyndon Johnson confronts the world : American foreign policy, 1963-1968 ( Book )
8 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is the most comprehensive, perceptive, and nuanced review to date of the foreign policy of the Lyndon Johnson era. It demonstrates not only U.S. concern with the Soviet Union, Europe, and nuclear weapons issues but also the overwhelming preoccupation with Vietnam that shaped policy throughout the world. During this period, Johnson also faced a series of emergencies ranging from turmoil in the Congo, to war in the Middle East, to a perceived communist challenge
Strait talk : United States-Taiwan relations and the crisis with China by Nancy Bernkopf Tucker( Book )
9 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Relations Among the United States, Taiwan, and China challenge policymakers, international relations specialists, and a concerned public to examine their assumptions about security, sovereignty, and peace. Only a Taiwan Straits conflict could plunge Americans into war with a nuclear-armed great power. In a timely and deeply informed book, Nancy Bernkopf Tucker traces the thorny relationship between the United States and Taiwan as both watch China's power grow." "Although Taiwan-U.S. security has been intertwined since the 1950s, neither Taipei nor Washington ever fully embraced the other. Differences in priorities and perspectives repeatedly raised questions about the wisdom of the alignment. Tucker discusses the nature of U.S. commitments to Taiwan; the intricacies of policy decisions; the intentions of critical actors; the impact of Taiwan's democratization; the role of lobbying; and the accelerating difficulty of balancing Taiwan against China. In particular, she examines the destructive mistrust that undermines U.S. cooperation with Taiwan, stymieing efforts to resolve cross-Strait tensions." "Strait Talk offers valuable historical context for understanding U.S.-Taiwan ties and is essential reading for anyone interested in international relations and security issues today."--Jacket
Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the United States, 1945-1992 : uncertain friendships by Nancy Bernkopf Tucker( Book )
7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
No other study so clearly focuses American thinking on relations with Hong Kong and Taiwan. Surveying post-1945 U.S. ties with both areas in the context of earlier historical interaction, Tucker explores commerce and trade, military imperatives and political priorities, as well as cultural controversies over Westernization and tradition, bringing to light trends and events in the first comprehensive analysis of these relationships. Tucker reexamines Washington's continual efforts to sustain its uncertain friends through economic assistance and military protection in spite of their sometimes divergent goals and antagonistic policies. The U.S. was not above using its Asian clients to further selfish national interests or cold war strategies but in its dealings with the Nationalist Chinese frequently found itself manipulated rather than dominant

Isolating the Enemy: US-PRC Relations, 1953-56 by Tao Wang( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This dissertation reveals that although the Eisenhower administration had kept alive the idea of exploiting the divisions between the PRC and the Soviets, their policy concentrated more on containment of China rather than pressuring it in order to split the Sino-Soviet alliance; and the US containment was undermined by its reliance on cooperation with allies and using nuclear weapons to deter the PRC: while US dependence on allies gave American friends opportunities to influence its policy, US leaders' rhetoric about using atomic bombs strained their relations with friends as well as neutral states in Asia
