Sometimes they DO shoot the messenger

At the height of the McCarthyite hysteria of the 1950s, John Paton Davies, Jr., was summoned to the State Department one morning and fired. His offense? The career diplomat had counseled the U.S. government during World War II that the Communist forces in China were poised to take over the country—which they did, in 1949. Just part of a remarkable life recounted in China Hand An Autobiography John Paton Davies, Jr. Foreword by Todd S. Purdum. Epilogue by Bruce Cumings Purdum, national editor of Vanity Fair, along with Davies daughter Tiki Davies will present a FREE talk at Politics & Prose this coming Wednesday (3/14) at 7 pm. 5015 Connecticut Ave NW
