RECOGNITION OR NON-RECOGNITION 236 XIIL THE OUTLOOK FOR THE FUTURE 253 FOREWORD Russia is the terra incognita of the world today. We make daring and costly efforts in the interests of science to explore the North and South Poles where no man lives, and since Livingstone we have added the Dark Continent to our world of understanding. If we do not know much concern ing these areas at least we have no fatal misinformation about them and no attitudes that hinder correct interpreta tion of any facts we may learn. We have more information about Russia, but we also have more misinformation. fl It is not too much to say that this one-sixth of our planet is the most misunderstood portion of the globe and for good reason. The issues concerned in an almost entirely new social order, based upon a new conception of life, affecting the family and the home, morality and religion, liberty and justice, and involving the contrasts of war or peace, love or hate, violence or non-violence, tolerance or persecution, capi talism or communism, all are so vital and bound upwith our deepest convictions and our most sacred traditions, that im partial and objective judgment in such cases is difficult or almost impossible, Yet there is no country that is more important to under stand or that is likely more profoundly to affect the rest of the world, whether for good or evil, in the coming years and generations. For Russia has come to stay, at least for a very vii viii FOREWORD long time. It is upon us. Whether as a menace, or as a challenge to set our own house in order, or as a vast experi ment which may in time work out some values that may be of use to the rest of humanity, we ought to know what is going on in that section of the world. Yet it is almost as difficult as judging Germany in war time. There is misin formation and false propaganda, often well meaning, on both sides. This book is written in the conviction that Russia consti tutes a challenge to America and the world. Though poles apart, both the friends and foes of the Soviet Union will probably object to some of the statements here made, but the manuscript has been submitted for criticism and correction to experts both in Moscow and New York, to learn whether in point of fact there were any statements that were untrue or unfair, however much both sides may differ as to their Interpretation. The question is often asked as to how far visitors are able to ascertain the realities of the situation in Russia. It is true that tourist parties visiting the country for the first time, knowing nothing of the language, are partly at the mercy of their guides and interpreters, but our parties have been given every facility for hearing many witnesses on both sides of every question. The writer has made sixvisits to Russia in connection with his work, twice under the Czarist regime in 1911 and 1912, four times under the present government in 1923, 1926, 1929 and 1930. Year by year we have seen our former acquaintances of the old order both inside and out side the Soviet Union* * We have interviewed friends and x foes of the present government, foreigners and Russians in every walk of life. We have gone everywhere we wished by night or day with perfect freedom. We have chosen our own interpreters, often taking them from America or find ing them among our permanent fr Kessinger Publishing is the place to find hundreds of thousands of rare and hard-to-find books with something of interest for everyone!
