    1. Written with an immediacy that is almost breathless at times, this work gives a detailed picture of rural Communist campaigning in 1930s China. It is obviously biased however, but the author does not pretend otherwise. The many anecdotes of Chinese rural life give a substantial historical picture. And Smedley comes across as a generally positive character, except for her occasional fanatical outburst.
