AMERICAN-RUSSIAN RELATIONS IN THE FAR EAST

Dr. Tompkins' conclusions in this rather formidable tome are that we are at long last facing the fruits of war and the fruits of anarchy, their roots many years back, and that American-Soviet relations today are proof of the inability of sovereign states to promote international security on a balance of power basis; we must aid U.N. in evolving into a world government. Some of her conclusions have a familiar ring, but she buttresses her arguments with facts, liberally documented (10 appendices in all). Part I explodes the myth of our ""friendship"" for Russia; Part II introduces the prelude to intervention, our erratic policy in Siberia, our vacillating diplomacy in the Far East; Part III analyzes the fruits of recognition of Japan's Manchurian invasion -- and its outgrowth in World War II....The author is lecturer in political science at Wellesley.
