Special Studies Series
Sixty-nine special studies commissioned by the federal government from various extra-governmental “think tanks”, such as the Institute for Defense Analysis, the Rand Corporation, Army War College, and Research Analysis Corporation are in this collection. The first part of the collection is devoted to China while the second section is concerned with Taiwan. Included in the Chinese section are papers on land reform, military strategy, the cultural revolution, Chinese foreign policy, Sino-Soviet relations (including material on the 1969 border disputes), the Chinese economy, United States-Chinese relations, the Chinese air force, the Chinese nuclear weapons program, the Kuomintang and the Sino-Soviet War, and collected works of Mao Tse-Tung. The shorter section on Taiwan features papers on the political environment in the Republic and its prospects for future independence. One should note that the title dates refer to the dates of publication of the studies rather than to the periods with which the studies deal.
The guide contains a complete annotated listing of the records and a subject index. The authors and their institutional affiliation are provided.
