Yutang, Lin. My Country And My People. Halcyon House, January 1938.

Over the span of the last 800 years, China has been repeatedly invaded and conquered by
foreigners, who inevitably become “Chinese” through the course of a couple generations after their initial invasion. In this text, Yutang explores the traumatic disorientation resulting from a battering of influences and forces upon the Chinese people, as well as the affect of “overnight” modernization of China on the Chinese spirit and psyche.
