In this work the author assumes normalization as an established national policy of the United States, and analyzes practical considerations and legal problems relating to the implementation of the American normalization policy with the People's Republic of China. In particular, the author addresses questions relating to the current status of the 1972 Shanghai Communiqué, the legal aspects of a treaty termination with the Republic of China, the problem of frozen assets, the international legal status of Taiwan, and the international status of the Republic of China as affected by the recognition of the People's Republic of China.
