Description:

Richard Nixon continues to be a source of fascination as well as intense debate for political scientists and historians. This companion Website to the PBS broadcast this month of "Nixon's China Game" examines what is generally regarded as the main triumph of the Nixon presidency, his opening of relations with China. The site's best feature is an interview with Henry Kissinger -- available in text, audio, and video -- in which he discusses both the geopolitical strategizing and the behind-closed-doors maneuvers at the White House that took place before and during the summit. The site also provides background essays on the main figures on both sides at the summit as well as maps, Nixon's itinerary, interview transcripts, a selected bibliography, an enhanced transcript of the film (available January 31), and a teacher's guide offering suggestions for discussion based on viewing the film.
