Beyond East and West /by John C. H. Wu.
"Wu Ching-hsiung, who became John Wu, is by all odds the most surprising convert to Catholicism of this century. He is one of China's leading lawyers, one time President of the International Court at Shanghai, principal author of the new Chinese constitution of the mid-thirties. The high point of his pre-Catholic life was his close friendship and lengthy interchange with Mr. Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes--an unlikely novitiate for Catholicism. He is not only a surprising convert, he is a surprising Catholic--so totally Catholic, so totally Chinese. He tells us that in entering the Church he lost nothing of what he had but only gained new treasures: and you feel that this must be so--he could never have been more Chinese than he is now."--dustjacket.
