Oil For The Lamps Of China by Alice Tisdale Hobart

“An exceptionally fine story of Big Business in the Far East. Modern China is the setting for this novel of Stephen Chase, representative of a big oil company, entrusted with the delicate mission of establishing trading posts in the interior, and of dealing with the natives and selecting native agents. It is an interesting study of the Oriental mind as opposed to the Occidental, of the resentments, the petty jealousies, the uncompromising attitude of the home office which makes even important executives mere cogs in the wheel of “”Progress””. There is a unique love story interwoven with the business aspects, a rather heart-breakingly human phase of life, with all its privations and tragedies….” – Kirkus Review
