This study of modern China was completed during the twentieth anniversary year of the People's Republic. It embodies the results of long research checked by the personal experience gained in the course of extensive travel between 1958 and 1966. To the task of the orthodox geographer Professor Buchana has added an interpretation of the manner in which the Chinese view their problems and an evaluation of the relevance of China's development techniques to the underdeveloped regions of the world.
