The League and the Lytton Report: The Fifth Phase of the Chinese-Japanese Conflict (May 1- December 31, 1932). Geneva Special Studies, vol. III, no. 10. Geneva, Switzerland: Geneva Research Information Committee, 1931-1934.

The Geneva Special Studies were a series of journals published on global conflicts that were so severe the League of Nations stepped in to help maintain world peace. This series focuses on a dispute over Manchuria between China and Japan. That dispute, as well as pushback over rising Japanese influence in China, would lead to the Second Sino-Japanese War fought as part of World War II. The studies focus on a recounting of the League of Nations action with both countries, and detail items such as troop movement, negotiations between the countries, and international action that influenced each nation.

This volume focuses specifically on the Lytton Report, a report that came out during the latter half of 1932 in the fifth phase of the conflict. The Lytton Report was created by the Commission of Enquiry and was a report to aid in creating a settlement under Article XV of the Covenant of the League of Nations. The Japanese news discounted the report saying it did not consider the realities and timeliness of the conflict.
