How Not to, in China

September 1977
National Review;9/2/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 34, p984
This article focuses on the view of American liberals that the U.S. should sacrifice its relations with Taiwan in order to improve relations with China. Sinologist John Fairbank said that the U.S. should accept China's three conditions for normal relations. The conditions are: no more recognition of Taiwan by the U.S., no security treaty with it, and no American military in Taiwan. It is now often argued that if the U.S. does not accept China's conditions, it will turn instead to the Soviet Union. Edward M. Kennedy, in a speech delivered by him in Boston, Massachusetts, urged the U.S. to end its defense treaty, and its diplomatic relations with Taiwan.
