Two Years with the Chinese Communists

By Claire and William Band

Yale University Press, 1948, 347 pp.

Though the authors, a British physics professor and his wife, eschew political judgments, this narrative of their peregrinations as refugees among the Chinese guerrillas and as residents in wartime Nationalist China has interesting political implications. They take the unheard-of view that both the Communists and the Nationalists have the same fundamental program for building the New China, and that their differences have arisen almost entirely from fortuitous circumstances.
