Six case histories from a study of the gentry by Yung-teh Chow are appended. ''The chief interest and charm of this book lie in the fact that it is not directed to the Western reader; these were studies written in Chinese, by an erudite Chinese, for a Chinese public. . . . Mrs. Redfield is to be complimented for her own careful research in preparing this translation for a non-Chinese public.''?Robert F. Spencer, American Anthropologist
