Pete Millwood is a postdoctoral fellow in the Society of Fellows in the Humanities at the University of Hong Kong. He is a historian of US-China relations and his first book, Improbable Diplomats: How Ping-Pong Players, Musicians, and Scientists Remade US-China Relations, 1969–1978, is under contract with Cambridge University Press.

A US banker’s recent visit to China has drawn comparisons with historic episodes that preceded a thawing of relations in the 1970s. Amid US-China decoupling, it is encouraging that the two sides have resumed backchannel communications.
