The Sino-American Friendship As Tradition and Challenge: Dr. Ailie Gale in China, 1908-1950

Dr. Ailie Gale was one of many twentieth-century women missionaries in China whose letters to supporters played an important role in American conceptions of a Ospecial Sino-American friendship.O This book shows how these letters from China reveal as much about the strivings of readers at home as they do about China during the tumultuous period from 1911 to 1949.
