The existing scholarship on U.S.-China relations has been dominated by diplomatic themes. In exploring the possible lost chance in economic and cultural relations, this microfilm collection challenges prevailing views. It presents the declassified materials that present a kind of "case study" on the approach of the Economic Cooperation Administration toward China and the Communists in the postwar era.
This collection presents how ECA officials looked for economic and cultural opportunities to promote U.S.-China relations despite the prevailing Cold War suspicions of any and all communists which dominated the minds of American policymakers.
