The book displays a surprising narrow-mindedness in regard to the equal rights of all men on the planet to master and enjoy all of life that they are willing to strive and work for, irrespective of race or colour. That Japanese or Negroes should never be permitted to challenge the white race's supremacy in any field is an assumption quite contrary to all the standards of decency and human dignity, though undoubtedly common to the age in which the author lived. I feel the book is not going to improve the standard of thinking of any young reader unless with careful explanations of the thought-processes current at the period of its writing.

This book isn't suitable for young people at all--much of the plot concerns the heroine's boyfriend's rivalry with a Japanese-American fellow-student and it's full of anti-Japanese racist comments.
