Richard Baum has given us a rare and intimate gift: a wonderfully funny and revealing chronicle of adventure as experienced by one of the greatest China watchers of our time. Richard Dennis Baum (July 8, 1940 – December 14, 2012) was an American China watcher, professor emeritus of political science at UCLA, and former director emeritus of the UCLA Center for Chinese Studies, noted for his many academic works on Chinese politics. On February 20, 1989, Baum and scholars Harry Harding and Michel Oksenberg met with George Bush, then incoming ambassador to China James Lilley, and others to brief the president on U.S.-China relations. Baum advised that it would be better to talk about human rights in the most general terms possible.
