KIRKUS REVIEW

An informed and liberal view of our new economic frontiers, --India, China, Japan -- and their imperative need for democracy, self-government, a raised standard of living. These backward nations must be developed as consumer markets for the industrial nations -- if the United States is to find a market for its industrial potential -- such is his theme. Discrediting the Cripps' mission and the White Paper, Jaffe asserts that India must be given independence, and condemns Britain's strang lehold short-sighted and restrictive. Similarly, he suggests that Chiang's government in China does not promote a rise in the standard of living, and if Japan is to emerge a trustworthy nation, she must be given opportunities for economic progress. Controversial -- realistic -- significant. And Jaffe's involvement in the famous supposed spy ring case of not too distant date has given the book some additional publicity
