The relationship between the United States of America and the People's Republic of China is traced in this dictionary containing hundreds of cross-referenced entries on the presidents and prime ministers, the secretaries of state and foreign ministers, other key players, and the more significant institutions and events. Everything from the Boxer Uprising in the late 19th Century to Nixon's historic visit to China in 1972, from the crisis over U.S. arms sales to Taiwan in 1982 to the U.S. bombing of the Chinese Embassy at Belgrade in 1999 is covered in this highly accessible scholarly work. The book's introduction and chronology delineate the many differences in political, military, and ideological issues between the two countries. Two appendixes list all the United States Presidents and Secretaries of State, as well as all the Republic of China Presidents and Prime Ministers and the People's Republic of China Presidents and Prime Ministers, respectively. Supplementing the material is an extremely detailed bibliography of related materials.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Sutter (Georgetown Univ.) offers a historical dictionary containing 461 entries with comprehensive coverage of multiple aspects of US-China relations, 1784-2005. It is a reliable source for historical and current issues, events, institutions, and figures, including those related to Taiwan and Hong Kong, that have affected important bilateral relations....Having worked as a senior government official in this field and having published dozens of works on China-related topics, Sutter is uniquely qualified for compiling this dictionary. It will be a tremendous resource on US-China relations for college students and faculty who are studying and doing research in relevant areas. Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers. * CHOICE *
The book is easy to read, and the heavy black type for the entry headings is a big help....This sturdily bound reference book is probably best suited for academic and large public libraries, along with branches that serve a Chinese-American population, and those specialized institutions that collect in this field. * American Reference Books Annual *
From Dean Acheson, the US State Department official who argued for withdrawing support of the Guomindang of Chiang Kai-shek, to Zhu Rongji, the Chinese leader who worked closely with US officials during the late 1990's Asian economic crisis, Sutter (School of Foreign Service, Georgetown U.) presents cross-referenced alphabetical entries that explain the importance of certain persons, events, organizations, and concepts to Sino-American relations over the course of the past two centuries. As with other volumes in the series, he also includes an introductory overview essay, a chronology, and a bibliography. There are also lists of US Presidents and Secretaries of State from 1789 to the present and Chinese Presidents and Prime Ministers from 1912 to the present. * Reference and Research Book News *
