Basis for Peace in the Far East
Basis for Peace in the Far East
By Nathaniel Peffer
Harper, 1942, 277 pp

Mr. Peffer, a leading American writer on Far Eastern matters, lays down what he believes to be the essentials of a sound peace settlement in that part of the world -- the complete destruction of Japan's military and political power, accompanied by an assurance to her people that once her political ambitions have been forsaken they can have access to the raw materials and trade outlets of the Orient; the recognition of the complete international equality of China; a reform in the administration of the colonial areas in southeastern Asia; and independence for India.
