Pearl Buck makes revisions to a review of THE GREAT CHALLENGE by Louis Fischer.
Anotated typed manuscript, unsigned, 3p, 8½x11. Titled: "THE GREAT CHALLENGE/By Louis Fischer/Review by Pearl S. Buck". Pencil title added: "All Peoples Alike". Buck has made ink revisions to her review of Fischer's book. A representative paragraph from Buck's review (ink revisions underlined): "In this new book, Louis Fischer gives the account, in his always interesting and living style, of his latest tour of world inspection of men and peoples. Ourselves, our leaders, England and her leaders, Russia and her leader, Japan and India, individuals and peoples in Palestine and China are surveyed and analyzed with swift and incisive care. Among all peoples Louis Fischer finds the same longing for security and he outlines what security means in today's terms. He faces the great threat to world security at this moment, the conflicts between Russia and the West, and tries to discern Russia's motives. He gives a review of Russia's people, and their position today in terms of real freedom. Louis Fischer plainly loves the people of Russia. He makes no denial of that - to him they are a fine, brave, patient lot. Therefore he cannot forgive the communist government for betraying them. He is convinced that the Russian people are in the hands of a gang, exactly as Germany's people were. Stalin he declares is a dictator of the shrewdest and most ruthless breed. He believes that Communism has not worked. That is, it has not brought plenty and freedom to the people who deserve these goods. Nor can Louis Fischer forgive the Harold Laskis of our world who do not tell the whole truth about Stalin and communism and who lead us toward unfounded hopes." Pearl S. Buck (1892-1973), born to Presbyterian missionaries, spent the first forty years of her life in China, the setting of many of her books. Her second novel, The Good Earth, won the 1932 Pulitzer Prize, and Buck also won the 1938 Nobel Prize in Literature for her epic works about China. She later wrote about other Asian nations, including India and Korea. Lightly soiled. Paperclip impressions and stain in upper left corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
