Description

This is the story of the behind-the-scenes team that set the stage for Nixon's historic visit to China. In 1972 the U.S. had no diplomatic relations, no embassy, and no established route of communication with China. Enter Ron Walker, director of the White House Advance Office and code name "Roadrunner." In the months leading up to Nixon's visit, Walker and a team of 100 Americans went to Peking to pave the way for the President. The team's only link to home was a twice-daily satellite feed with the White House. The transcripts of those conversations are the basis for this astounding story, and reveal the extraordinary background behind "the week that changed the world." This fascinating narrative includes a foreword read by former President Richard Nixon.
