The Case for Manchoukuo

The Case for Manchoukuo

By George Bronson Rea

Appleton-Century, 1935, 436 pp.

A complete presentation of the case for the new state and a defense of Japanese policy, by a "counsellor" of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Manchukuo. The gist of his argument is that Manchuria was not Chinese, that the revolution there was a bona fide affair, and that Japanese policy in Manchukuo was necessary as a protection against communism and Bolshevik advances. He makes many suggestions for averting a conflict between Japan and the United States.
