Gareth Jones: A Manchukuo Incident

By 

Dr. Margaret Siriol Colley

 

Manchukuo Incident by Margaret Siriol Colley

Gareth Jones, a prominent Welsh journalist and former Private Secretary for Foreign Affairs to Lloyd George, was murdered in Inner Mongolia on the eve of his 30th birthday in 1935.  

 

“What luck!  There are great events here.  I am witnessing the changeover of a big district from China to Manchukuo [Manchuguo] … There are two roads to Kalgan to where we go back; over one 200 Japanese lorries have travelled; the other is infested by bandits.” 

 

 These were the final words that Gareth Jones wrote in his diary before he was murdered. 

 

 “There is no doubt that Gareth was in deep waters, for the swirl of Far Eastern politics is more ruthless and treacherous than anything conceivable in the West, more a mixture of petty interests of money and 'face' with the enormous clash of national interests.  They knew what he had discovered in Russia and they knew what he had found out in the East.”  Mr R. Barrett of The Hong Kong Critic

 

 Gareth Jones - A Manchukuo Incident is a thoroughly researched investigation into Gareth's untimely death by the hands of Chinese bandits which has remained a mystery until the present day.  The author's investigation is widely interspersed with Gareth's thrilling account of his intrepid journey in the Far East and provides the reader with a valuable insight into the opinions of prominent people that he met in the early 1930s. 

 

 Gareth Jones - A Manchukuo Incident gives a very credible answer into the political intrigue surrounding his murder.
