     January 1, 2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States of America. Over the past four decades, China-U.S. relations have evolved from tense standoffs to a complex mix of intensifying diplomacy. While our relations have grown deeper and stronger, a future of healthy competition and cooperation does not come without challenges. It would be exceptionally beneficial to take a look back at the lessons of history, particularly the legacies of those past 40 years. It is also crucially important to create a shared vision of bilateral relations underlined by mutually beneficial partnership. 

 To that end, the Center for American Studies of Fudan University and the Shanghai Institute of American Studies, together with The Paper (a Chinese digital media outlet), present “40 People on 40 Years: An Interview Series Commemorating the 40th Anniversary of China-U.S. Diplomatic Normalization”, a project which features exclusive interviews with 40 renowned experts (20 from each side) and aims to closely examine the diplomatic path to where we are today, and explores the potential to strengthen mutual understanding and enhance collaboration. 

  The China-U.S. rapprochement 40 years ago not only changed the world’s political landscape, but also changed the fate of countless Chinese and American people. We therefore decided to shed some light on the front-row witnesses to the development of China-U.S. relations, uncovering their personal journeys to China/U.S. studies as well as the highlights of their impressive careers.
