Excerpt from Modernizing of the Orient
The East has at last met the West face to face. What has been the character of that meeting? What have been the results of the mingling of these two opposite and distinct sets of people with their antipodal points of view and methods? Is the East becoming West? What is happening? These have been the writer 's questions upon two journeys around the world in which many unusual privileges have been afi'orded for first-hand contact with a large variety of institutions and native populations.
