Chapter Summary

According to its historic development, the Chinese nation was formed by the blending of numerous clans. During the Ch'in and Han dynasties, Chinese military exploits figure prominently in the historical records. As for China's economic structure, each region within the geographical setting described in this chapter has its own particular soil and natural resources. That there are five peoples designated in China [Chinese, Manchus, Mongols, Tibetans, Mohammedans] is not due to difference in race or blood, but to religion and geographical environment. Fortunately, Sun Vat-sen, with his prophetic foresight, applied his great courage and wisdom to the task of establishing China's freedom and equality, and of arousing the whole nation. Chiang Kai-shek, had been identified from the beginning with restarting the Republic of China on the road to independence and freedom. He hopes that all citizens of the country will realize that China's destiny rests on their shoulders.
