Re: What foreigners visiting Mao's China said and heard

In the past one would have been able to access some of the raw pre-1966 reports in the archives of the 中华人民共和国外交部.  Typically the reports show up in folios related to specific visits, i.e. would be searchable based on the (transliterated) name of the individual or delegation involved.  I'm not sure if this lead is particularly helpful though, Michael, because of recent restrictions on searching and viewing of previously declassified 外交部 archival holdings.  But it's in those archives that I've seen the kind of sources that you're referring to.
