Portraiture frontispiece. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “What manner of man is Syngman Rhee? Americans as diverse as Woodrow Wil son and Douglas MacArthur have praised him highly. Prime Minister Nehru has frequently disparaged him. The Christian Science Monitor called him “the problem child of the United Nations”. To General Van Fleet, who worked closely with him in the Korean war for two years, he is “worth his weight in diamonds”. Like Lincoln and Wash ington, he has had the capacity of arous ing violent denunciations and astonish ing loyalty and devotion. He has become one of the epicentres of his age — a sym bol, a magnet, a target, a prophet and a statesman.”
