(no dust jacket) [worn copy, considerable fraying to cloth along hinges and at top of spine, bumping/exposure of boards at all corners, frontispiece photo is detached and laid in at front (all other photo plates are in place)]. (B&W photographs) Smedley's very scarce second book (following her semi-autobiographical novel "Daughter of Earth"), much of which was apparently a reworking of the reportage she'd been doing from China (mostly Shanghai) since late 1928. This copy is not in terrific condition, but the book itself is uncommon in any printing.
