The Problem of China, originally published in 1922, is Bertrand Russell's analysis of China's place in the world and its place in the future development of society. It was evident that China would become a major force in international affairs, according to Russell, because the population of the country makes up a major portion of the population of the world. In studying the "problem" of China, Russell breaks his inquiry down into cultural, economic, and political questions.

The Problem of China - Bertrand RussellProject gutenberg ref 13940EpubA European lately arrived in China, if he is of a receptive and reflective. A European lately arrived in China, if he is of a receptive and reflective disposition, finds himself confronted with a number of very puzzling questions, for many of which the problems of Western Europe will not have prepared him. Russian problems, it is true, have important affinities with those of China, but they have also important differences; moreover they are decidedly less complex.

The Problem of China - Bertrand Russell. CHAPTER I: QUESTIONS. Chinese problems, even if they affected no one outside China, would be of vast importance, since the Chinese are estimated to constitute about a quarter of the human race. In fact, however, all the world will be vitally affected by the development of Chinese affairs, which may well prove a decisive factor, for good or evil, during the next two centuries.

Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3rd Earl Russell, OM, FRS was a British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, social critic and political activist.

Bertrand Russell goes in specific details with the information and technology available at the time to compelled a rigorous analysis of the Chinese political state of the 1920's to provide pragmatic solutions to the challenges of that great nation. From the importance to draft the constitution, invest in education, create a strong government and defense army to the industrialization.
This is a great book. A lot of information is dated by now (such as the population and geography of China), of course, but looking back, I see that Russell's understanding of China and prediction about China's future is amazingly correct. His discussion on China's relationship with Japan and the Chinese civilization is also very informative and interesting. He also wrote this book with sympathy -- an outsider trying his best to understand a foreign culture with a humble heart -- which, unfortunately I rarely see in books on China (in English) nowadays.
Bertrand Russell gives an in-depth account and analysis of the problems faced by China during the early 20th century. While analyzing the dynamics at play on the global front, he also attempts to identify the three most pressing issues which China faced internally--the need for an orderly government, industrial development under Chinese control and the spread of education. Notwithstanding the fact that he is a Westerner, he strives to debunk myths and prevailing misconceptions of the Chinese people. Russell writes elegantly and this book is indeed a remarkable account for those who wish to learn more about China.
Traveling in China, Bertrand Russell had a lot to say about her abilities and greatness.
It is refreshing to read a well-written and interesting account of China with historical perspective, and
even though it is an older book this perspective makes the understanding of China and the Chinese
much clearer.
A bit wordy, but it seems that was the style of the time. However, it was extremely insightful of the Chinese character, as well as the Japanese and European character.
The predictions of China is fascinating.
It's really a rare thing that the author, though a Westerner, showed respect for the seemingly uncivilized country.
Suitable learning material for a English learner.
Good reading.
There is nothing that I can add to the excellent reviews already written.

The Kindle format was done perfectly.
