TO FAITH PREFACE THIS book is the outgrowth of travel and investiga tion in the Far East during 1937, made possible by a fellowship from the Rockefeller Foundation. Its content and emphases were necessarily affected by the outbreak of Sino-Japanese hostilities during that period. In addition to presenting the more immediate background of the con flict, I have sought to deal briefly with what will probably constitute merely its first stages. I take this opportunity to express my appreciation to the many individuals, both in China and Japan, who have freely volunteered information, placed materials at my disposal, or otherwise assisted me in the preparation of the manuscript. To the Foreign Policy Association, which generously enabled me to devote a full year to this re search project, my thanks are due in special measure. My greatest obligation is to my wife. Without her un failing optimism and encouragement, the task would never have been completed. To her the book is dedicated. T. A. BISSON. Port Washington, L. L, April 12, 1938.
