Four pamphlets which might well be read to supplement the material in this booklet are: Changing China by George E. Taylor, China—America’s Ally by Robert W. Barnett, The Changing Far East by William C. Johnstone, and War-Time China by Maxwell S. Stewart. The first -three are published by the Institute of Pacific Relations, 1 East 54th Street, New York 22, N.Y. (1942), and the third is No. 41 in the Headline Series of the Foreign Policy Association, 22 East 38th Street, New York 16, N.Y. (August 1943).

There is more about China’s history and geography and the way they help to explain her present problems inThe Making of Modern China by Owen and Eleanor Lattimore, published by W. W. Norton and Company, 70 Fifth Avenue, New York, N.Y. (1944), and in L. Carrington Goodrich’s Short History of the Chinese People, published by Harper and Brothers, 49 East 33rd Street, New York 16, N.Y. (1943).

Is China a Democracy by Creighton Lacy, published by John Day Company, 2 West 45th Street, New York 19, N.Y. (1942), and The Battle for Asia by Edgar Snow, published by Random House, Inc., 20 East 57th Street, New York, N.Y. (1941), answer many questions about the China of today.

Far Eastern War 1937–41 by Harold S. Quigley, published by the World Peace Foundation, 40 Mt. Vernon Street, Boston, Mass. (1942) gives a good survey and analysis of the events within the period indicated in the title.

Three novels about China in the war years are: Dragon Seed by Pearl Buck (John Day—New York, 1942); A Leaf in the Storm by Lin Yutang (John Day—New York, 1941); and Destination Chungking by Han Su Yin, published by Little, Brown and Company, 34 Beacon Street, Boston, Mass. (1942).

Translations of modern Chinese literature also help to fill in the picture. Living China (John Day—New York, 1936) is a collection of contemporary short stories. Village in August published by Smith and Durrell, Inc., 25 West 45th Street, New York, N.Y. (1942) is a novel about the war by a Chinese soldier.
