The son of a prominent Chinese government official and general and
the former schoolmate of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, Chi Wang
personally experienced one of the most tumultuous periods in
Chinese history, including the Marco Polo Bridge Incident,
theJapanese occupation of Hong Kong and mainland China, and the
Chinese Civil War (1946-1949). In 1949, Wang left China for the
United States, traveling though mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong
Kong during the final days of the Chinese Civil War. After arriving
in America, he quickly made a life for himself and became active in
the development of Sino-American relations. From sitting behind
Secretary of State William Rogers and President Nixon's daughter
during ping-pong diplomacy, to orchestrating the release of Young
Marshal Zhang Xueliang, to presiding over the exponential growth of
the Chinese collection at the Library of Congress, Wang's memoirs
provide unique Chinese insight in the development of Sino-American
relations at a pivotal time in our shared history.
