The U.S. State Department's Office of Chinese Affairs, charged with operational control of

American policy toward China, amassed information on virtually all aspects of life there

immediately before, during, and after the revolution. Recently declassified by the State

Department, the Records of the Office of Chinese Affairs, 1945-1955, provide valuable insight

into numerous domestic issues in Communist and Nationalist China, U.S. containment policy

as it was extended to Asia, and Sino-American relations during the post-war period.
