China Among the Powers
China Among the Powers
By David Nelson Rowe
Harcourt, 1945, 205 pp

One of the great questions in the mind of everyone interested in international relations is whether or not China will emerge from this war as a Great Power -- in cold reality and not just "by courtesy." Dr. Rowe, Research Associate in the Yale Institute of International Studies, has pretty well erased that question mark in this comprehensive little book. The conclusion to which his analysis of China's military and economic strength -- and weakness -- leads is that it will be a long time before that country becomes in reality a Great Power.
