[Transcriber's Note: The folowing text contains numerous non-English words containing diacritical marks not

contained in the ASCII character set. Characters accented by those marks, and the corresponding text

representations are as folows (where x represents the character being accented). Al such symbols in this text

above the character being accented:

breve (u-shaped symbol): [)x] caron (v-shaped symbol): [vx] macron (straight line): [=x] acute (égu) accent:

['x]

Additionaly, the author has speled certain words inconsistently. Those have been adjusted to be consistent

where possible. Examples of such adjustments are as folows:

From To Northwestern North-western Southwards Southward Programme Program re-introduced reintroduced

practise practice Lotos Lotus Ju-Chên Juchên cooperate co-operate life-time lifetime man-power manpower

favor favour etc.

In general such changes are made to be consistent with the predominate usage in the text, or if there was not a predominate speling, to the more modern.]
