Sun Yat-Sen His Life and Its Meaning: A Critical Biography

By Lyon Sharman | Go to book overview

Kuomintang -- nor yet by any one else. This book is not the place to attempt the tedious disentangling of threads and the analysis of tortuous motives. It was a deplorable mêléé in which Chinese parties were springing at one another's throats, while foreign diplomacy threw financial barbed-wire entanglements over the field. But it was more than that. It was a great social tragedy, in which a nation with deeply set habits of action, and an amassed heritage of cleavages and craftiness, attempted to become something which it inherently was not. Some day we may have imaginations equal to grasping the tragedy of this people. When that day comes, the exchange of blame among parties will be purged away in emotions of pity and terror. As the tragedy moves to climax after climax, the stage is piled with the slain, not alone the bloodslain and the politically slain, but the spiritually slain. With the changes in Yuan Shih-kai himself some other author will one day wrestle. Among the spiritually slain we have to reckon the believing Sun Yat-sen, magnanimous and sure of his fellow-men: him we shall never see again. Sun Yat-sen passes into a new phase of character as well as of life.
