Reviews

Since 1950, Western military planners, journalists, and scholars have tried to determine the role of China and the Soviet Union in the outbreak of the Korean conflict. Through the use of recently released Chinese documents, conversations with People's Republic of China scholars, and in-depth interviews with people who were present at key decision-making meetings, Chen Jian has been able to furnish answers to some of the most nagging questions. -- Choice Chen's China's Road to the Korean War... is the most carefully researched and seriously argued discussion of the subject. -- Warren I. Cohen, The Nation
