The Situation in Asia
The Situation in Asia
By Owen Lattimore
Atlantic (Little, Brown), 1949, 244 pp

In this follow-up to his "Solution in Asia," published four years ago, Dr. Lattimore casts a critical eye on American policies in the Far East. In certain countries, such as China and Korea, he finds that we have committed the mistakes which he predicted, with the predicted results. Since we cannot restore the old colonial order anywhere in Asia, he believes that we had best do what we can to aid the nationalist movements of that part of the world and hope that the Chinese Communists are of the Tito stripe.
