EAST ASIA IN DANGER by Lorenz Stuckl


Email this review


The author, a Swiss journalist, traveled in Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Quemoy, Taiwan, Japan and Hawaii. This is his report based on interviews with heads of state, officials, businessmen and the people--it is a grim picture. Mr. Stuckl's purpose in writing the book is chiefly reportorial -- to acquaint the West with something of the political, economic, social and cultural aspects of this vast, vastly important and little known part of the world. He succeeds at the level at which he is aiming (a rather low level, since he feels it necessary to explain SEATO), but whether such an would buy this book is His book is rather too popular for the more sophisticated audience, but nevertheless anyone would find something here both interesting and instructive.
