Preface to the final edition

This volume served as background for the Tenth American Assembly, which met at Arden House, Harriman, New York, November 15- 18, 1956, on The United States and the Far East.

The conference agenda, prepared from the material of this book by its editor, Willard L. Thorp of Amherst College, focused on questions regarding American attitudes and policies toward China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. There are no chapters contained here on South and Southeast Asia, nor were these areas included in the main discussions, the brevity of the conference and the breadth of the subject not permitting.

On Thursday, November 15, the Assembly opened with luncheon, followed by the first discussion session. The group was divided into three panels, each considering throughout the conference the common agenda. Dr. George E. Taylor, Director of the Far Eastern and Russian Institute, University of Washington, was discussion leader at Panel No. 1. With him as panel secretary was Dr. Robert A. Scalapino, Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Hugh Borton, Director of the East Asian Institute, Columbia University, led Panel No. 2. Professor Allen S. Whiting of Michigan State University was secretary. At Panel No. 3, as discussion leader and secretary respectively, were Dr. Shannon McCune, Provost of the University of Massachusetts, and A. Doak Barnett. In the absence of the Director, Dr. Courtney C. Brown, Dean of the Graduate School of Business, Columbia University, served as chairman of the conference.

Discussions continued until noon, November 17, when a drafting
