Government by Assassination

By Hugh Byas

Knopf, 1942, 369 pp.

The author spent the last quarter century in Japan, where he was correspondent for the New York Times, and is thus in a position to give a long-range view of Japanese conditions and institutions. Mr. Byas lays stress on the rôle of political assassination and the terrorism of ultra-patriotic groups in Japanese political life.
