The Rising Sun in the Pacific, 1931-April 1942

By Samuel Eliot Morison

Atlantic (Little, Brown), 1948, 411 pp.

Starting with the moment when the militarists took control of Japan's foreign policy, Professor Morison reviews the record of American-Japanese relations up to Pearl Harbor before giving his balanced, authoritative account of the dark first four months of the Pacific war. This is Volume III in his "History of U. S. Naval Operations in World War II."
