"This is the very first time that London's writing on Asia has appeared together in a single volume. We have his accounts of his voyage to the Bonin Islands and Yokohama, all twenty-two of his lengthy dispatches from Japan, Korea and China as well as his many letters from Asia in 1904, his early stories centering on Japan, and his later stories and essays on the Far East." - Dr. Wilton S. Dillon The Smithsonian Institution "Metraux adds to the growing scholarship on Asia in the American imagination, challenging assumptions about London's racist perceptions of Asia, and showing London's appreciation for Asia as well as his prophetic stance toward later developments in the region. This provocative study should be read by anyone with an interest in Jack London or the history of the 'Yellow Peril.'" - Prof. Robert Grotjohn Mary Baldwin College"
