Politically she is nil, but in the missionary circle she is a first-rate power. Her changes that have taken place externally and internally during the last quarter of a century make one of the startling pages in history. She was nothing, and yet she set in motion the most colossal war-campaign of modern times." The book covers much more than the missionary take on the emerging country of Korea, it includes history, social issues, customs, politics, social life, and a great deal of basic information of the age.
