Language: English.

Supplied note: "The first U.S. president to visit China, Nixon [...
established] a new political relationship with the PRC after decades of
mutual estrangement. The highlight of Nixon's trip was his meeting with
Communist Party Chairman Mao Zedong but its substance lay in a series of
almost-daily [21-28 February 1972] extended conversations with Premier Zhou
Enlai. [...] Once highly classified [...] all but three of the documents
were released in their entirety. Significant excisions appear in the
Nixon-Zhou discussions of Taiwan, Japan, South Asia, and the Soviet Union."

Note: A series of gif-images of the original conversation memoranda. The
images are loading quickly.
