An absorbingly interesting and very scholarly book, this presents the Asiatic world (with Russia and Turkey thrown in for good measure), as holding the roots of our coming civilization. Professor Miller analyzes the nations of the Far East from the point of view of the human equation and their reaction to world movements and adaptation of the best of the West to their own ends. A book that will appeal to the readers of Spengler's DECLINE OF THE WEST. The author was rather spectacularly dismissed from the chair of sociology at Ohio State, on the ground of some of the material contained in this book, which was first published in a text edition by Heath. It has a real chance for a trade sale, in small quantities.
