Sinopsis:

In this narrative, Braisted--an admiral's son who actually lived in China during his father's tour of duty with the Navy at this time--is both historian and a witness with special insight.

Book Description:

"Unique in both its comprehensive research and breadth and depth of coverage. This volume extends Braisted's analysis of naval affairs in the Pacific that he began in his two previous acclaimed works. Diplomats in Blue has a particularly timely quality because it conveys the complexity of working in and with a foreign culture in a 'peacekeeping' or 'maintenance of order' mission similar to current operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. There are lessons here for policymakers."--James C. Bradford, Texas A&M University William Braisted is one of the world's foremost authorities on the U.S. naval experience in the Pacific, especially China, and Diplomats in Blue is a monumental work that adds further luster to his remarkable career. The 1920s and 30s were an especially turbulent period in Chinese history, and the U.S. Navy was deployed there not as an instrument of war, but of diplomacy. Their task was to keep China intact, independent, and free of occupation. They faced warlords fighting throughout the country, growing nationalist sentiment, and, eventually, the rise of Chinese communists and heightened Japanese aggression. Their mission included protecting embassies, conducting river patrols, protecting American lives and property, and carrying out civil affairs with the Chinese government. In this narrative, Braisted--an admiral's son who actually lived in China during his father's tour of duty with the Navy at this time--is both historian and a witness with special insight.
