Language: English.
Resource type: Documents.

Self description: "The Chinese army crackdown in and around Tiananmen
Square on June 4, 1989 had an enormous effect on the course of U.S.-China
relations. The deaths of democracy protesters resulted in U.S. sanctions,
suspensions of high-level contacts, and a halt in the transfer of military
technology. The controversy continues to this day, as demonstrated by the
reaction of many concerning President Clinton's decision to appear in the
square with Chinese leaders during his June 1998 trip to China."
