ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the book "North From Malaya," by William O. Douglas. There is a type of mind, to which the very name of Douglas is as a red rag is to a bull, which means that the book, will not be read by the very persons who have most need to read it, to wit, the unreasonable. Candid observers realized long ago that the mess in Southeast Asia is the logical outgrowth of old-style imperialism surviving into a century that is beyond that phase of development. What Douglas contributes is a detailed explanation of the process of disintegration and a persuasive estimate of its extent.
