Horner, Francis J. Case History of Japan. [New York: Sheed & Ward, 1948. Pp. XVIII+260. $3.00.]

Among the many books written about Japan that have appeared during and since the great war this volume stands well at the top for interesting description, historical orientation and sound analysis of issues and events. The author, havin gspent 14 years among the Japanese people, gained an insight into their character, ways of thinking, and problems, and was thus well prepared to write a book of this type.

The material has been presented in two parts, the first discusses the racial, various religious, political and educational factors and systems in terms of their effect on cults and culture, while the second part presents the apparent psychological effects of the social organization on the people as evidenced in their unique customs and behavior.

The author suggests a solution to the problems that have arisen in connection with the integration of Japan into the world order. In these pages are available a clear cut view of the Japanese people and their psychology offered by an authority who knows what he is writing about. It is therefore a refreshing experience to read it. Sociologists as well as psychologists should have it at hand.
