The Tinder Box of Asia

By George E. Sokolsky
Doubleday, 1932
376 pp. $2.50

The author knows China from long residence there and activity in close touch with Chinese official circles. This does not prevent him from sharply criticizing Chinese leaders where he thinks criticism is needed, or from giving full credit to the Japanese and the Russian positions. The present book centers on the Manchurian conflict and supplies a concise statement not only of Japanese interests in the country, but of Russian and American stakes there -- as well as a good narrative of recent events. The closing chapter gives an account of the communist movement in China. The book contains also a useful working bibliography.
