HISTORY. "This comprehensive book deals specifically with study in Western nations and Japan (by Chinese youths), and it covers approximately a seventy-year period from the latter part of the nineteenth century to the take-over by the Red Chinese in 1949. During these seven or eight decades about one hundred thousand students went abroad for extended periods. As a consequence, most of China's leaders during the twentieth century either had studied abroad themselves or had learned from teachers educated abroad...These men became the driving force behind nearly every aspect of the multifaceted process of China's modernization-military, technological, scientific, diplomatic, financial, political, ideological, and literary...Obligatory for Sinologists, historians, and educators, this conscientious contribution to Chinese history should be read by everyone concerned with the relationship between the East and the West today.
