Summary

"In the summer of 1989 soldiers of the China People's Liberation Army (PLA) raced into the center of Beijing with orders to recover "at any cost" the city's most important landmark, Tiananmen Square, from student demonstrators. The United States and other Western countries recoiled in disgust after the horrific incident, and the relationship between the United States and China went from amity and strategic cooperation to hostility, distrust, and misunderstanding." "According to Robert L. Suettinger, the calamity in Tiananmen Square marked a critical turning point in U.S.-China affairs. In Beyond Tiananmen, Suettinger traces the turbulent bilateral relationship since that time, with a particular focus on the internal political factors that shaped it." Through a series of candid anecdotes and observations, Suettinger sheds light on the complex and confused decisionmaking process that affected relations between the United States and China between 1989 and the end of the Clinton presidency in 2000.
