Miss Mears believes that modern Japan was made in the image of the western imperial nations. But in her effort to do what she regards as justice, she finds it necessary to minimize or condone obvious Japanese shortcomings as revealed in the recent war. She is critical of our occupation policies, which she observed at close range.
