it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction, first-reads, history
Read in January, 2011

A first reads win. This was a fascinating look into a piece of history I knew nothing about. While I have been interested in Eastern history, my reading has mostly focused on Japan. This view from the perspective of the Chinese Educational Mission was engaging and informative. The perspectives and accomplishments of several of the boys are presented and analyzed. An excellent choice for someone interested in the development and history of China.
