Anson Burlingame’s mission to China and his service as Chief of Chinese embassy to the U.S. and Europe. The arrival of Chinese workers and students in the U.S. And US open-door policy toward China and the supposed implication for China’s territorial integrity will be examined, as well. U.S- China alliance during WWII and U.S. Involvement in the Chinese Civil War were some of the critical moments in the Sino-U.S. relationship.
