I just read a great chronology of UC Berkeley’s ties to China. It was posted to Haas@Cal website. In courtesy of the author, I forwarded the full text here to share with more readers.
Last Saturday June 27th. at the Glamour Bar in Shanghai, I attended a book talk event.Â U.S.Â journalist and author Ms. Lynne Joiner previewed her upcoming new book “Honorable Survivor: Mao’s China, McCarthy’s America and the Persecution of John S. Service ” (Link on Amazon.com).
It turned out to be a great talk.Â Before the talk, I have no idea of who is John S. Service (Jack Service).Â Â Now I learned this American diplomat has played an important role regarding U.S. and China relations prior to and during the World War II, and then was McCarthyâ€™s first victim.
