Fifty Years in China
Fifty Years in China
By John Leighton Stuart
Random House, 1954, 346 pp

For many years a missionary and educator, Dr. Stuart was appointed United States Ambassador to China in 1946, a post he held until December 1952. The first half of these memoirs deals with his earlier years; the second, with the tangled years after the Second World War. Written calmly and without rancor, it is nonetheless quite critical of several aspects of United States policy, especially the publication of the "White Paper" in 1949.
