Strait Rituals

Pang Yang Huei

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter sets out the aims of this book, stating the main lines of inquiry. Next, a brief “state of the field” assessment on the historical problem of the Taiwan Strait crises will be made. It will examine how a reevaluation is pertinent with the availability of new sources and how such a new appraisal speaks about the deeper trends of historical questions of Sino-US relations. This is followed by a short content review and a discussion of the usage of Chinese and US sources.

Keywords:   Taiwan Strait Crisis, Eisenhower, Chiang Kai-shek, Mao Zedong
