"Hamilton's book illuminates the career of Edgar Snow... a fine job of relating Snow's remarkable story and his role in America's relations with China." -- J. William Fulbright
"Hamilton's well-informed biography scrutinizes both Ed Snow's career and the America that lionized him in World War II and ostracized him during the Cold War.... Hamilton's objective and scathing critique of America's anti-communist obsession makes one hope that publication of this book marks our entrance into a more constructive era in international relations." -- John K. Fairbank
