THE SITUATION IN ASIA.

LATTIMORE, Owen.

Boston 1949, Little. Grey cloth, very good, 243p., index,dj. in mylar protector, a superbly clean, bright copy, 13 x 19.5 cm. FIRST EDITION Covers the ruins of Empire, its heritage, legacy of World War II, nationalism & revolution, Russia's frontier in Asia, Japan is nobody's ally, war & revolution in China. China, Russia & America. Beachheads of empire. The essentials of an American policy in Asia. Fascinating account by the foremost scholar on Mongolia, Xinkiang [Xinjiang], and China in view of the Communist take over of China. Scholarly essays. Lattimore was a well-respected scholar who was fluent in both Chinese and Mongolian. No small feat at the time. He was also well-underwritten by some of the most famous institutions who sponsored his research and Central Asian travels. His books are authoritative, fascinating and give keen insights to the complex relationships in Central Asia, the political forces, the cultural variations of the divergent peoples and the geography. His works are a valuable resource for areas largely neglected at the time mostly because the area was closed for such a long time. Against the odds, he won his way into Mongolia and Central Asia and did his research while traveling in the most primitive areas by the traditional camel, donkey and yak cart. He talked to the people, understood their ways and culture. His record is a valuable insight to who and what was going from the 1920's down to the 1940's. Lattimore was a lecturer at Harvard University, researcher for many years at the Social Science Research Council, Harvard-Yenching Institute, and the Guggenheim Foundation as well as at the Institue of Pacific Relations. He was also the Director of the Walter Hines Page School of International Relations at Johns Hopkins University. .
