About the Book

This volume examines the issues surrounding the renewal of the Anglo-Japanese Treaty of Alliance and looks at the possible consequences of different courses of action, against a backdrop of a Far Eastern situation under constant change. In spite of claims of impartiality, this volume represents widely-held views of the day that "the future supremacy of the white races is endangered" and the author claims to have remained as objective as possible, despite "being a member of the Western family of nations against whom the new Japanese peril may come to be directed."
