Description

1919. Illustrated. Brown, influential American clergyman, missionary and prolific author, who traveled throughout the world most notably in China and other Asian countries. The general idea of this book is that the Korean Peninsula is the strategic point in the mastery of the Far East. He describes the country and people, and then discusses the struggle between China and Japan for the possession of Korea, and its culmination in the China-Japan War; the diplomatic and military struggle between Russia and Japan for the coveted prize, and its culmination in the Russia-Japan War; the supremacy in the Far East that Japan won by her victory in that memorable conflict; the policies and methods of Japan in governing a subject people; the characteristics of Japan as the Imperial Power in Asia and a world-power of the first magnitude; and the place and influence of Christian missions as one of the most potent of the enlightening and reconstructive forces which are operating in the Far East and which hold the promise of a better world order.
