Trading with the Far East. (Irving
National Bank, New York, 1919. 261 p.)
The supply of commercial literature has
been enriched by the addition of this volume.
It is a companion volume to "Trading
with Latin America," published by the
same institution during the year 1918.
The present volume attempts, and with
much success, to furnish real information
on the subject. No pains have been spared
in the accomplishment of this purpose.
The need for the book is predicated on
an increase in foreign trade which is expected
to follow the conclusion of peace
negotiations. As stated in the preface, the
book "undertakes to provide an interpretation,
for commercial purposes, of recent
conditions in these countries, with a general
analysis of trade opportunities and the
possibilities for development of the various
resources of the Orient."
One of the best ways in which to convey
an idea as to what a book contains is, when
they are truly descriptive, to summarize the
chapter headings. In the present instance
this method seems to serve admirably. The
principal headings are as follows:
"America's Opportunity in the Far
East—The Viewpoint of the Orient—
Policies and Methods in Export Trade—
