In 1951 Governor Dewey made a whirlwind tour of the West Pacific from Japan and Korea to Indonesia. In this book he presents a running narrative of the trip, with accompanying reflections on the state of Asia. While the book is critical of American Far Eastern policy it is neither polemical nor dogmatic. Of particular interest are the reports on Indo-China and Formosa.
