Until They Eat Stones
Until They Eat Stones
By Russell Brines
Lippincott, 1944, 340 pp

Amid the welter of "first-hand" accounts of events in the Far East this book stands out as an objective, fact-laden interpretation of Japan's entire plan for conquest and domination. Mr. Brines, an American newspaperman with considerable experience in the Orient, was interned in Manila and later in Shanghai. He has much of interest to relate about the methods by which the Japanese have sought to obtain the loyalty of their newly-conquered subjects. His conclusions give little hope that it will be an easy task to undo the work of Japanese "education" among these peoples or to reform Japan herself.
