The Man Who Lost China
The Man Who Lost China
By Brian Crozier
Scribners, 1976, 430 pp

A solid, lively and well written political biography of Chiang Kai-shek aimed at the general reader. Manages to bring out Chiang's virtues as well as his warts. Very harsh on American China policy in the crucial period from Yalta to the Communist victory, but without endorsing the crudities of the "who lost China" school of thought.
