About This Item

New York: Prentice Hall, 1951. First Edition. Hardcover. Fair. 5.98 x 1 x 9.02 inches. Ex-library book has usual markings, stamps, stickers, writing, card holder. No DJ. Some bumping, rubbing, on the top, tail of spine, edges, corners. Outer edges could have yellowing, browning, stains, foxing. Chinese-U.S. author, essayist and academic Dr. Lin Yutang’s appears to formulate his conception of a world beyond the muddling of today in a world that has survived two more world wars, and inaugurated a new Democratic World Commonwealth, outside the limitations of national sovereignty. He makes the contact between this groping old world and an island community, dedicated to peace, isolation and immunity from world ills, exalting the virtues of culture, and surviving in a state of suspended animation with little or no government. B3.
