Book Talk with Prof. Paul Pickowicz: "A Sensational Encounter with High Socialist China" [Webinar]
Oct. 6, 2020 | Register
"A Sensational Encounter with High Socialist China" is a recollection of the historic visit of fourteen American students (and one Canadian) to China in 1971. The visit was one of the first approved for American scholars after the Chinese Communist Party came to power in 1949 and occurred prior to President Nixon’s famous trip (as well as that of a second group of scholars) in 1972. This book is Paul Pickowicz's personal account of the events leading up to their visa approvals as well as those that occurred during the journey itself.
