Star-Spangled Mikado

Star-Spangled Mikado
By Frank Kelley and Cornelius Ryan
McBride, 1947 282 pp. $3.50 Purchase

Two correspondents in Tokyo describe, breezily and none too reverently, various phases of the American occupation of Japan, including MacArthur's efforts to lay a basis for democratic government. They do not impugn the General's motives, but they feel that he is relying on the very people who backstopped Japanese expansionism before and are preparing to do it again.
