Mediation Mission to China, December 1945–January 1947, edited by Larry I. Bland (George C. Marshall Foundation, 1998). For an analysis with particular attention to the Marshall mission by a leading Chinese “America hand,” see Zi Zhongyun, No Exit?: The Origin and Evolution of US Policy Toward China, 1945–1950 (EastBridge, 2003).
