Mrs. Reischauer rounds off her book with a portrait gallery of other colorful relatives - mostly Matsukata's sons. We meet, for example, Matsukata's sixth son, Otohiko, a gregarious member of the Hasty Pudding Club at Harvard, where he became friendly with Franklin Delano Roosevelt. ''Oto,'' as Roosevelt and other friends called him, later tried to plead for peace over tea at the White House, when all his Government in Tokyo was thinking of was war. We also meet Matsukata's third son, Kojiro, who made a fortune during World War I selling battleships from his Kawasaki shipyards to the British. Then there is Saburo, the youngest son, who was a ''Marx boy'' during the 1910's, full of socialist ideals. During World War II he ran a news agency disseminating Japanese propaganda in occupied China, where he also indulged his great fondness for cooking. He ended life as a celebrated Boy Scout winning the Bronze Wolf award. (English)
