Review

Meticulously researched…Rife with interesting and fresh anecdotes, the book takes us through the early days of an unsteady trading relationship trying to find its footing…Ingleson offers keen observations about the differing ways China and the United States incentivized trade during normalization. -- Elizabeth Van Heuvelen - Finance & Development

Ingleson nicely meshes large-scale economic analysis with fine-grained accounts of how businesspeople warily navigated the new world of U.S.-China trade…a revealing overview of a critical sea change in the world economy. - Publishers Weekly

A beauty. [This book] demonstrates exquisitely detailed research, originality of thought, maturity of judgement and a wide-angled vision of geopolitics…The detailed argument is something any serious student of China and the global economic system should eat up over a weekend…this is a case study in globalisation, the international freeing up of capital markets, the creation of complex value chains and the way in which China boomed and America fractured. It’s thoroughly worth reading on all these levels. -- Paul Monk - The Australian

Wow, what a book. Written in academically solid yet lively prose, it is a brilliant examination of how politics transforms trade, and trade transforms politics. -- Linda Jaivin - Saturday Paper

Rich in anecdotes and personality sketches of the pioneers of Sino-American trade…These are familiar debates to which [this book] makes a spirited contribution, but [Ingleson] brings fresh insight by highlighting ‘a deeply held’ political continuity that ‘persistently framed trade and manufacturing in terms of the nation state’…In the springtime of 2024, when China’s supreme leader Xi Jinping has just summoned the top executives from American business to an audience with him that is meant to reassure them that all will be set fair despite his xenophobia, his ideological commitment to state control, and his Stalinist political instincts, it is worth taking the time to read the case studies laid out in this book. -- Michael Sheridan - Engelsberg Ideas

Made in China is the best overview we have of how the United States helped make China the world’s foremost trading power. Ingleson skillfully shows how American needs and Chinese wishes combined to remake global capitalism. -- Odd Arne Westad, author of The Cold War: A World History

In this original, well-researched book, Ingleson sheds new light on the emergence of US-China trade relations in the 1970s. With sharp analysis and effective storytelling, she shows how labor unions, textile workers, bankers, self-styled ‘China hands,’ and entrepreneurs of various stripes saw China as both an opportunity and a threat. In the process, she expands our understanding of the diverse voices and interests that shaped this pivotal trade relationship. -- Jason M. Kelly, author of Market Maoists: The Communist Origins of China’s Capitalist Ascent

A compelling work about a period of US-China relations that is receiving increasing attention. From the lifting of the US trade embargo to the first tentative import partnerships to burgeoning manufacturing, Ingleson traces how American business’s view of China transformed from a land of ‘400 million customers’ to one of ‘800 million workers,’ a series of gradual perception shifts that added up to a sea change. -- Joyce Mao, author of Asia First: China and the Making of Modern American Conservatism
