Our Future in Asia
Our Future in Asia
By Robert Aura Smith
Viking, 1940, 306 pp

This is one of the best books on American policy in the Far East to appear in recent years. Mr. Smith, a newspaperman who knows the Orient well, gives a comprehensive picture of the problems we face, particularly in Southeastern Asia where America's economic and strategic interests are shown to be anything but negligible. Though isolationists will not like his suggestions as to what active steps this country should take to protect its position in the Far East, they will find it very hard to refute them.
