KIRKUS REVIEW

Under the auspices of the Rockefeller Foundation and the Institute of Pacific Relations comes this clarification of and background to Pearl Harbor, --""why we got into the war, the sort of war America is in, and the most important problems which will arise out of victory"". Large questions in brief compass, intelligently analyzed. The war, one of separate conflicts, -- industrial, ideological, colonial. America in Asia, the unorganized, non-governmental westernization under the tutelage of private industry versus Japan's expansion, conscious, integrated, planned. The steps towards war from 1910 and the conquest of Korea onward. India and other subject peoples; the extent of cooperation allies may expect from various native populations; and finally the conclusion that America will be the future progressive leader in the East. Helpful marshalling of facts -- clear-sighted grounding.
