Coming in from the Cold

(p.238) Conclusion
The Diplomacy of Migration

Meredith Oyen

Cornell University Press

This book concludes by discussing changes in travel policy in the lead-up to President Richard M. Nixon's trip to China. It first considers Nationalist China's increasing insecurity about American policy and support in the 1960s, driven not only by concerns over the rise of the Taiwan independence movement but also by constantly changing conditions in Asia. It then examines the United States's long-standing policy of isolating the People's Republic of China from global affairs via heavy restrictions on trade and travel, and how that policy began to break in the 1960s. It also analyzes Nixon's trip to China in 1972, deemed to be the most vital “migration” of all, and how it changed the face of the Cold War in Asia. Finally, it assesses the importance of migration diplomacy to how the United States, China, and Taiwan manage their complicated relationships today.
