Drawing on personal letters, diaries, memoirs, government documents and contemporary news reports, John Pomfret reconstructs the surprising, tragic and marvelous ways Americans and Chinese have engaged with one another through the centuries.

A fascinating and thrilling account The Beautiful Country and the Middle Kingdom: America and China, 1776 to the Present is also an indispensable book for understanding the most important―and often the most perplexing―relationship between any two countries in the world.
