This was a pretty fascinating book (maybe because I've been studying Japanese). He dedicates the book (1909) to Elihu Root, and was apparently in with the Republican Progressives. Can anyone recommend a good book about his involvement in China?
Doug Harper
Five stars because of its importance and the acute insight of the author. He foresaw Pearl Harbor decades beforehand. Stylistically, it rates three, or at most four, stars.
