The League and Shanghai: The Fourth Phase of the Chinese-Japanese Conflict, January 1- April 30, 1932. Geneva Special Studies, vol. III, no. 5. 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 issue covers the fourth phase on the conflict from January through April, 1932. A new prime minister was installed in Japan who claimed American support and escalated the conflict by claiming Manchuria and referring to it as Manchukuo. Disputes between the two parties were still being mediated by the League of Nations at this point. In these reports, footnotes point to both government documents and reports produced by the League as well as news articles.
