This paper examines the legacy of Richard Nixon.In particular, Nixon?s topsy-turvy relationship with China is examined with focus on the reason behind Nixon dramatically altering American relations with China. Another area that is analyzed is whether Nixon?s pursuit to leave his mark as an elder statesmen rationalized his change of stance in regards to US-China relations.
From the Paper:"Richard Nixon altered the nature of America's relationship with the People's Republic of China for political and personal reasons. Nixon wanted the Soviet Union to be more accommodating to American demands and he saw improving relations with China as the perfect bargaining chip. Nixon also wanted to put an end to the Vietnam War and he tried to use China to do so. Finally, Nixon wanted to show the American public and the world that he and his government could act on the world stage and he attempted to make his mark as an international statesman by improving relations with China."
