About this book
Subtitled "A Very British Mission To Mao's China". This is a curious story of the 1954 British delegations to Communist China, a mix of travelogue, comedy and cultural history.
This delightfully eclectic book, part comedy, part travelogue, and part cultural history, uncovers the story of the British delegations that were invited to China in 1954 - a full eighteen years before President Nixon's more famous 1972 mission.
