"The Chinese Puzzle" is an apt name for a book dealing with the complicated politics of the Far East, but Mr. Ransome's vivid pages gives us a real insight. He is as shrewd an observer as any I have encountered, and he provides certain clues which should be of great assistance to those who would attempt its solution.
A book about the political situation in China in the early 1920's with some insightful advice on how the British government should deal with the Nationalists. It also covers the British troops stationed in Shanghai.
