    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 60.00

    Chinese leaders have long been fascinated by the United States, but have often chosen to demonize America for perceived cultural and military imperialism.

  • Asia Firstby Joyce Mao

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 32.00

    After Japanese bombs hit Pearl Harbor, the American right stood at a crossroads.

    This is the first in-depth study of Sino-American relations during the Theodore Roosevelt administration.

    Osprey Publishing 2015; US$ 15.95

    The ace pilots of the Republic of China Air Force have long been shrouded in mystery and obscurity, as their retreat to Taiwan in 1949 and a blanket martial law made records of the RoCAF all but impossible to access. Now, for the first time, the colorful story of these aces can finally be told. Using the latest research based on released archival... more...
