Stumbled across this academic article from the late 1970s comparing & contrasting the images of China presented in the two best-selling books on China in 1930s America – Carl’s 400 Million Customers and Edgar Snow’s Red Star Over China (published roughly within a year of each other)….here’s the full citation for anyone interested – Pacific Historical Review, Vol. 47, No. 1 (Feb., 1978), pp. 107-122 (16 pages)
