Industry Reviews

"Wiest enables the student of mission history to follow step by step the often painful progress of the China mission from its birth in 1918 to the persecution that began with the Communist triumph in 1949 and its fateful aftermath ..."--John Tracy Ellis "A masterful and definitive overview of a major and multifaceted encounter between two great nations ... Special dividends include insights into the changing role of women in the American Catholic church; missionary strategies and lifestyles, and the missionaries' reactions to the impact of East Asian international relations."--Jeffrey C. Kinkley "Superb ... a 'must' for everyone who would know the situation of the Church in continental China."--William J. McCormack
