"A timely and valuable contribution on the origins of US involvement with Taiwan. . . . Accinelli pays close attention to the domestic and international contexts of US policy making, and his conclusions are convincing."--Choice
"Accinelli skillfully weaves the findings of other scholars with an in-depth archival research to present a level-headed account of Washington's evolving relations with Chiang Kai-shek's remnant regime through the crises in Korea, Indochina, and the Taiwan Straits."--Journal of American History
"This is the traditional approach to American foreign policy at its best--in-depth archival research, appropriate usage of secondary sources and identification of historiographical debates in rich expository citations, keen sensitivity to the multiplicity of factors shaping decisions, and a clean and crisp writing style."--William Stueck, University of Georgia
