Bottom book fore corners a little bumped. Price clipped DJ chipped with short tears and creasing, some soil. ; A tight solid book, dust jacket in Mylar jacket protector. Fold-out duotone map tipped in next to title page. ; 8.20 X 5.90 X 1.50 inches; 599 pages; A virtual "Who's Who" in Asia, from Tel Aviv to Tokyo, on the eve of WWII. Gunther introduces the history and national characteristics of each nation, together with the biographies of their statesmen, politicians and war lords. Full of details and anecdotes, this is a superb accomplishment. This was a very timely analysis of the Asian world in a world in flux, on the cusp of a worldwide conflagration. You must remember that Japan was in the process of a brutal attack on China and within a matter of a few years after the end of WWII, Palestine would become Israel and India would emerge from the influence of Great Britain. The Phillipines were heavily involved in the Pacific theater.
