A popular Chinese writer, for many years resident in the Occident, returns to his native land for a brief visit. In this report on his observations and impressions he denounces foreign critics of Chiang Kai-shek's régime as purveyors of Communist propaganda, though he himself expresses dissatisfaction with the Kuomintang's reluctance to embark on the experiment of democratic government.
