"This is a study of the tensions of intellectual choice, the hard choice between the conflicting values of two civilizations. In the nineteenth century Chinese began to be torn between the appeal of their own traditions and the challenges of the West. ... Many different intellectual choices have been made in modern China — Communism the latest one when others eemed to fail — but the choosers' motives could hardly be entirely intellectual. Always, along with the search for right answers, acceptable to anyone, went the search for ideas that Chinese could accept. It was a search for continuity, for an identity as modernman and modern Chinese together."
