The Four Hundred Million

By Mary A. Nourse
Bobbs-Merrill, 1935
375 pp. $3.50

A well-written and illustrated survey of Chinese history, by a woman long resident in the interior. The emphasis is on cultural history, though fully half of the book is devoted to the developments of the last hundred years.
