The Pacific Area
The Pacific Area
By George H. Blakeslee
World Peace Foundation, 1929, 230 pp

Professor Blakeslee is a leading authority on questions of the Pacific, and he has compressed into this short book a wealth of information dealing with the whole complex of international problems arising out of the changes in China and the conflicting imperialistic policies of the Great Powers. The volume is well-documented throughout and shows an unusual grasp of the extensive literature that has grown up about Chinese treaty questions, the problems of tariff autonomy and extraterritoriality, as well as the intricate Manchurian situation.
