    About this book

Chinas image was seriously twisted since the late Qing Dynasty. Gu Hongming, the eccentric master of Western and Chinese learning, published The Spirit of the Chinese People in English in 1915, defending the dignity of Chinese culture with his pen and lifting the Wests bias toward China to some extent. The book was a big sensation in the Western world and was later translated into many languages. In the book, the author compared the Chinese people to the American, British, German and French to highlight the Chinese characteristics: the American people are broad, simple, but not deep; the English are deep, simple, but not broad; the Germans are deep, broad, but not simple; the French have not the depth of nature of the Germans nor the broadness of mind of the Americans nor the simplicity of mind of the English, but a quality of mind viz. delicacy; and only the Chinese people have all of the above superb qualities.
