KIRKUS REVIEW

A good companion volume to Japan In Crisis, by Harry Emerson Wilde (Macmillan reviewed page 312), this is a presentation of China and the Chinese, not from the historian's standpoint, but from the human angle. Just as Pearl Buck made the Chinese peasant a reality, so William Martin makes the Chinese people clear, humanizing them, clarifying their problems and difficulties, and picturing the cities and the countryside vividly and tersely. A good background book for all reading on China today, and easy reading.
