China Boys: Ambassador Nicholas Platt

China Boys: Ambassador Nicholas Platt

Ambassador Nicholas Platt discussed his new book China Boys: How U.S. Relations with the PRC Began and Grew, and the resumption of U.S.-China relations in the 1960s and 1970s at the offices of Jones Day in New York. The memoir chronicles the preparations and negotiations that went into Nixon’s 1972 trip; fourteen months later setting up the first American diplomatic office in the People’s Republic, in which he served; and some of the first exchanges between Americans and Chinese, several of them organized by the National Committee.
