Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »
Based upon several months of observation in China, Japan, and neighboring regions, and in Soviet Russia, this book, according to Lewis Gannett, in the New York Herald-Tribune “has new things to say… None of the recent flood of books on China casts such revealing sidelights upon the immense revolution in process in that continent-country.” Although Professor Holcombe cannot always reveal the sources upon which his information and opinions are based, he has presented a reliable, up-to-date, impartial view of one of the greatest political movements of our generation, a book of unquestioned value to all readers interested either in the Far East or in the problems of modern world politics.
