The League and Manchuria: The First Phase of the Chinese-Japanese Conflict, September 18-30, 1931. Geneva Special Studies, vol. II, no. 10. Geneva, Switzerland: Geneva Research Information Committee, 1931.

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.

Volume II, number 10 focuses on the first phase of the conflict in late September 1931. The League discusses how China invokes Article 11 of the Covenant of the League of Nations to gain aid from the League and put an end to the conflict. It also discusses the US entry into decision-making and determination of scope.
