Narrated by Barbara Caruso.
By 1972 the U.S. was still mired in Vietnam, and China was reeling from the changes wrought by the cultural revolution. In February of that year the leaders of these two great nations sat down for talks for the first time since 1949. Nixon and Mao both hoped to secure trade and diplomatic relations, but did either get what they truly wanted? MacMillan answers this question and countless others, while detailing how these negotiations continue to affect international relations between the U.S. and China today.
