Welcome to the Archive of the Society for Anglo-Chinese Understanding

SACU set out to inform the British public about China at a time when the country was internationally isolated, not recognised by the US and involved in a deepening split with the Soviet Union. Whilst the British government had opened diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic of China in 1954, it supported the United States in its opposition to China’s membership of the United Nations.
