I have not read this, yet, but the subject fascinates me, as my grandfather, Chien Chang Kan, also came to America (at age 16 in 1920), went to school (he graduated at the top of his class from RPI in 1925 with a master's degree in civil engineering), and went home to help modernize China. His specialty was building bridges, and he helped build the first steel suspension bridge in China designed and built entirely by Chinese engineers and Chinese labor.
