CHUNGKING DIALOGUES

Through ten dialogues, the author dissects the lessons of the past and the promises and threats of the future of China. Five Chinese characters constitute his cast; his subjects range from feeling about the Japanese and the war, to the ancient schools of philosophy and government, the stream of history, Sun Yat Sen, political theory, education, past and present economics, Chinese resources, foreign capital, etc. Here is the evolution of various types of thinking, of characteristic interpretation of history and current trends. Enlightening in the conflict and contrast of ideas and sentiments, in the self examination of representative mentalities, this adds interesting footnotes to more compendious volumes, indicates Chinese tendencies for reasonable conclusions.
