KIRKUS REVIEW

It is Matthew Calbraith Perry this time, brother of Oliver. At 14 he was the youngest midshipman in the service. He served in the War of 1812. He served in -- or off the coast of --Africa. He had his share in the Santa Ana mix-ups in Mexico. He was sent to be very polite -- quite overwhelming so -- to the sensitive Japanese. His biographer has done a good job.
