My Twenty-five Years in China
My Twenty-five Years in China
By John B. Powell
Macmillan, 1945, 436 pp

During the two decades ending at Pearl Harbor, Mr. Powell was owner and editor of the China Weekly Review. His opposition to Japanese expansion into China was consistent and bitter, and carried on at great personal risk. His chapters on this phase of recent Chinese history are written at first-hand and are important. It is in his discussion of internal Chinese affairs that he sometimes seems a less reliable guide, being thoroughly committed to Chiang Kai-shek and the Kuomintang.
