Reischauer, one of America's best-known Japan scholars, provides a personal perspective on his education, military service, academic career at Harvard, public speaking, and years as ambassador to Japan. His book is less insightful and informative than John K. Fairbank's Chinabound ( LJ 1/1/82): Reischauer could have, for example, told us more about his feelings toward Japan in World War II, his changing attitudes regarding the Vietnam War, and many of the notable persons named in passing. The two books do complement each other, however, in tracing the development of East Asian studies in the United States, and they add to our understanding of U.S.-East Asian relations. Illustrations not seen. Recommended for most collections. Kenneth W. Berger, Duke Univ. Lib., Durham, N.C.
