Editorial Reviews

Review

"Beyond being a son's well-researched, loving memoir of his truly accomplished father, this book is a major contribution to our ever-growing understanding of America's multifaceted role in the development of modern China." -Prof. P. Richard Bohr Saint John's University"

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Grant on February 2, 2012
Format: Hardcover
The subject matter of this memoir is EXCELLENT, and it will give the reader an uncommon glimpse of American missionary life in China during the first half of the 20th century. Even though it was authored by one of the most brilliant minds in America, it is truly unfortunate that it was written and published after the author had turned 93 and was suffering from health problems. Therefore, this memoir is not as complete as it could have been had it been written when the author (who is now 98 in 2012) was younger and in good health. Since the author and his father were both highly accomplished and exceptional men from a long and distinguished line of blue-blooded Americans, their actual biographies easily could instead be thick, in-depth volumes. As the author's final book, though, it is a wonderful, albeit brief, account of his father's life and that of his own. And signed copies of it are rare and highly collectible, partly because the author is the thirteenth-generation Richard Mather from the original Puritan Richard Mather.

Although the subject matter of "William Arnot Mather, American Missionary to China and Richard Burroughs Mather, Professor of Chinese: The Biography and Autobiography of a Father and a Son" is EXCELLENT, the quality of the printing by The Edwin Mellen Press is rather poor and does not reflect as well on the author as it should. The few pages of pictures that are included are interesting. However, the inclusion of more pictures would have been better, and the modern-day pictures that should have been printed in color were printed in black & white. Black & white pictures that should have been in color simply do not do justice to either the unveiling picture or to the two special pictures of Gary August paintings.
