Excerpt

On the author's return from a journey made in 1901 through Manchuria and the Far East, preceded by a visit to Russia and Siberia, a series of articles was published in the Saturday Evening Post, of Philadelphia, setting out things seen and observed in the regions of Russia's latest Asiatic advance.

A description was also given of the apparent situation of China as affected by the operations there of two or three European nations; and what then seemed to be the probable conflict between Russia and Japan was particularly pointed out, with the causes of it.

These articles form a considerable portion of this volume; and, indeed, the seeming advisability of their publication in book form, and certain requests therefor, are the occasion and apology for this work. They are reproduced practically without change.

It was believed that a more comprehensive understanding of the whole subject might be given if other chapters were added briefly describing Siberia and certain conditions and tendencies in Russia itself. These form the remainder of the book.

It has been the earnest endeavor to treat the subject with impartiality. Indeed, nothing has been essayed except to give the reader a faithful report of what any inquiring traveller may see and hear for himself if he should take the same journey.

ALBERT J. BEVERIDGE.

INDIANAPOLIS, October 1, 1903.
