This book is the year long experiences of the author's travels through the Soviet Union, Manchuria, the Near East, the Far East, South Asia and the Mediterranean. "I trust readers will find the book full of the joy of living; fullof the spirit in which men travel; and manifestly loaded with an abiding regard for the great masses of common humanity. Intimate contact with lowly people, made possible and necessary through constant travel in Third [Class], turned out to be the richestpart of many journeys."Observations on Soviet workers, Hitler's policies and ambitions, Chinese Communism, Japanese-Russian relations in Manchuria, along side experiences visiting the more familiar places like the Great Wall , the Taj Mahal, etc. Always thoughtful, often penetrating, Bradshaw provides a very interesting look at the world on the brink of World War II with some truly wonderful and unusual photographs.
