About This Item

Toronto: Longmans Canada (c.1962) This is the first-hand story of a foreign correspondent's life at the heart of Asian Communism. Nossal describes his extensive journeys through the industrial cities of Manchuria and the communes with their myriad ant-like workers. He tells of his contacts... and conflicts... with the Chinese officialdom, and vividly conveys the mistrust which the Chinese feel toward foreigners; even those foreigners who are themselves Communists. Frederick Nossal (an Australian) with nearly twenty years experience as a newspaperman in Fleet Street, Canada, Australia and the Far East has written a timely and admirably objective book. Illustrated with the author's own photographs. Foreword by Oakley Dalgleish (editor and publisher of 'The Glode and Mail' Toronto, Canada) Twenty chapters, epilogue and index offered. green cloth boards. No ownership markings. Very pale soil to book fore edge and rear endpaper. This book remains sound and bright in its bright photo wrap-around dust jacket.. Hard Cover. Very Good/Good.
