The essays retired Col. George W. Carrington had written while pursuing a master’s degree with American University had set on the shelf of his library for almost 40 years. When Carrington, 92, decided to pull these essays down, he realized he had material for what he believed to be a historic but oft neglected period of time. These essays come together in “American Missionaries and Russian Explorers Close in on China” (published by AuthorHouse).
These essays contrast the entering of the otherwise isolated China by Russian explorers and American missionaries: the Americans heading west, the Russians heading east.
An excerpt from “American Missionaries and Russian Explorers Close in on China”:
“It is my interest in this paper to investigate briefly into the philosophy behind the missionary movement, to give and outline a review of the missionary movement itself, to describe by means of biographical comment some of the most prominent of the early China missionaries, and to conclude with some of the evaluations or summarizations of the missionary movement.”
“American Missionaries and Russian Explorers Close in on China” will be featured at the 2014 California Library Association Book Fair.
