Excerpt from The Renaissance of Korea

We believe this little volume will influence public opinion even at this late day. "Great Japan" would be greater still if the ruling party could see things as the author of this volume docs - through Christian and historic eyes. The Empire has made unparalleled progress within half a century; that glory has been eclipsed by events in Korea and in relation to Shantung in China, happening within a twelvemonth. The best sentiment in that Empire regrets most sincerely the base acts of their rulers. May we not hope that this epitome of recent history will stir multitudes to a sense of duty toward a nation absorbed against its will within the body politic of a powerful neighbour which might be its friend and savior, but which has become its hated master because of actions like those here chronicled. We hail this little volume as a contribution toward Far-Eastern freedom and self-determination.
