Must reading for every liberal who wants to understand the problems, the question marks of India, Soviet Russia, China and their integral parts. Edgar Snow's known sympathies (Red Star Over China) are with the people's parties whether in China or Russia. He has however kept the book extraordinarily objective, informative and fresh in fact and viewpoint. The text combines excellent background and analysis with personal experience, illustrative anecdote and interviews. These interviews are very revealing, some with well known key figures, some of no importance-strategically -- but illustrative of the forces behind the front. Some of the newest material deals with Siberia, Mongolia, etc. He clarifies many points at issue; he answers often voiced questions. He supports India's demand for a chance to rule, or misrule, herself; of Russia's right to expect security on her borders; of Communist and partisan China to have equal acceptance and aid with the Nationalist Government; of Asia to expect to take the road to freedom.
