Ceylon and Her Citizens By I. Weerawardana and Marguerite I. Weerawardana Reviewed By Henry L. Roberts. Ceylon and her citizens.

And Rankine got there first. Her book is a well-constructed bricolage of anecdote, poetry, criticism, and multi-media presentation, expertly designed by Rankine's photograph/5(3K).
