From the jacket- "It is high time that this challenging book should be reprinted. It is one of Ezra Pound's most stimulating productions- a series of short, dynamic, inflammatory chapters in which he has let his iconoclastic mind rove over the whole territory of 'kulchur' as he has discovered it, from the Chinese philosophers to the modern poets."
