This article presents information on the book "Fifty Years in China," by John Leighton Stuart. One of the chief values of the book lies in its pen portraits of prominent Chinese of the day. Stuart knew most of them, some of them intimately. He believes that history will eventually deal kindly with Chiang Kai-Shek and will recognize him "as a devotedly patriotic, incorruptible, resourceful leader, inflexibly determined to maintain the independence of his country from any foreign domination and to lay the foundations for her constitutional democracy." He believes that Communism cannot long endure, for it is "founded upon sheer materialism and violent suppression of all criticism and opposition."
