The 1,166-page book, an intensely personal examination of his life and caree
上海乌托邦品茶微信r, sheds light on the Nixon administration’s behind-the-scenes decisions for dealing with a then-isolated China.
In an article published by Foreign Affairs magazine in October 1967, Nixon stressed the importa上海乌托邦

“For the short run, then, this means a policy of firm restraint, of no reward, of a creative counter-pressure designed to pers
上海乌托邦uade Peking (Beijing) that its interests can be served only by accepting the basic rules of in
ternational civility. For the long run, it means pulling China back into the world com
munity-but as a great and progressing nation, not as the epicenter of world revolution,” Nixon said.上海乌托邦
According to the book, shortly after taking office in 1969, Nixon urged Kissinger to explore the possi
bilities of rapprochement with the Chinese.上海乌托邦品茶微信
The book tells how China and the US sent signals to each other.
Nixon wrote, “The first serious public step in the China initiative h
上海乌托邦ad been taken in February 1970 when I sent the first Foreign Policy Report to Congress.”
The report called the Chinese “a great and vital people w
ho should not remain isolated from the international community”.上海乌托邦
“It is certainly in our interest, and in the interest of peace and stability in Asia and the w
orld, that we take what steps we can toward improved practical relations with Peking,” the report read.上海乌托邦品茶微信
Nixon said Chinese leaders clearly understood the significance of the language in the report, because two days l
ater, during a meeting in Warsaw, Poland, with US Ambassador Walter Stoessel, the C
hinese charge d’affaires, Lei Yang, suggested moving their previously unproductive meetings to Beijin上海乌托邦品茶微信
g. He also hinted that China would welcome a high-ranking US official as head of the delegation.
