Description:

Illustrated in b/w. With five foldable maps of the city and surroundings and 6 plates in b/w. Rubbing to most edges. Paste on label on the spine has nicks to edges. Scuffed covers. Binding is tight. Previous owner, as per bookplate on front free page, was Bill Powell. Bill Powell, as editor of the China Weekly Review (stamped on the title page) was a central figure, one of the few who survived into the 21st century, among a group of young men and women from the West (mostly American) who reported on the China theatre during World War II. In the face of censorship, language barriers (the country was a check-board of regional dialects), and the horrors of daily bombing raids, Powell and others dug for stories and then found various means to get their stories out and in print. Their reports marked the most extensive news coverage at that point of a non-Western country in the Western press. Bookseller Inventory #
