Based on a recent visit to Malaya, the Philippines, Vietnam, Burma, Formosa and Korea, Justice Douglas’ latest book presents forthright, often controversial judgments on the best way to meet the Communist threat on these Asian fronts. In general he despairs of efforts based on a preservation of the old order; social change is necessary.

William Orville Douglas (October 16, 1898 – January 19, 1980) was an American jurist and politician who served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Nominated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Douglas was confirmed at the age of 40, one of the youngest justices appointed to the court. His term, lasting 36 years and 209 days (1939–75), is the longest term in the history of the Supreme Court.
