Paired chapters on the same period, one by a Japanese scholar, one by a British, illustrate the differing perspectives on the same events, and the long period of time covered allows the collection to demonstrate how greatly each countrys view of the other changed with the changes in the international situation. The three sections cover the negotiations between Britain and Japan in the long run-up to the war, the activities of the two countries during the conflict, their planning for the post-war Far East and the actual relationship that emerged. Since the papers are grounded in the archives of both countries, the study is a pioneering and fascinating exploration of Anglo-Japanese relations during this period.
