Asien, Moskau Und Wir
Asien, Moskau Und Wir
By Klaus Mehnert
Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt, 1956, 433 pp

A first-rate account of Asian problems and attitudes, Western accomplishments and failures, and possibilities for constructive action. Although the author is particularly anxious to interest Germans in these problems, what he says concerns equally other Western readers. He wants the new governments in Asia to succeed but does not minimize the difficulties confronting them. Since the book is based largely on first-hand observation, Communist China is treated sparingly, and there is practically nothing on the Middle East--but much about Soviet Asia.
