Nixon Goes to China

March 1976
National Review;3/5/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 7, p203
The article examines the significance of an upcoming visit to China by former U.S. President Richard Nixon, as of March 1976. Concerns are expressed about the possible impact of the visit. During a visit by U.S. President Gerald R. Ford and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger last year, courtesies were minimal and they even received public lectures on the fallacies of detente. The planned visit by Nixon implies that he is in accord with the Chinese on the issue of detente and wants to emphasize it publicly.
