Recent scholarship on Truman's China policy was promoted mainly by the opening of U.S. government documentation and the changes in international relations since the 1970s. Until now there is no systematic and comprehensive study and account of U.S.-China relations during the Truman era as a whole from 1945 to 1952
Recent scholarship has reached consensus on some important questions: When U.S. high officials worked out U.S. China policy in 1945-1946, they put the issue in the context of American-Soviet relations in the East Asia. Truman and his advisers misread the intentions, capabilities and strategies of the Chinese Communists and the Soviets, and the nature of their cooperation. The Korean conflict was the turning point of American-China relations
Scholars part company on some key questions such as how the 1948 China Aid Act was formulated and passed; whether there appeared an opportunity for the U.S. to establish a working relationship with Peking in 1949-1950; when the Cold War started in Asia and what the root causes of U.S. foreign policy in Asia were.
