Star-Spangled Mikado

By Frank Kelley and Cornelius Ryan

McBride, 1947, 282 pp.

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.
