KIRKUS REVIEW

The history of power politics in the Far East, handled in scholarly fashion, with an objective viewpoint which is no respecter of persons (or nations). Japan and China, -- in relation to each other, in relation to the major powers, in relation to the lesser powers; and each of the powers -- from Great Britain down to Portugal, handled individually, not only in their status in eastern Asia, but in regard to their standing, the one with the other. An intricate pattern of power politics, a sordid picture bearing fruit today. Essential background book on the Orient.
