Item description for Britain & Japan: Biographical Portraits (Britain & Japan) by Hugh Cortazzi...

The continuing success of this series, highly regarded by scholars and the general reader alike, has prompted The Japan Society to commission this fourth volume, devoted as before to the lives of key people, both British and Japanese, who have made significant contributions to the development of Anglo-Japanese relations. The appearance of this volume brings the number of portraits published to over one hundred.
The portraits cover diplomats (from Mori Arinori to Sir Francis Lindley), businessmen (from William Keswick to Lasenby Liberty), engineers and teachers (from W.E.Ayrton to Henry Spencer Palmer), scholars and writers (from Sir Edwin Arnold to Ivan Morris), as well as journalists, judo masters and the aviator Lord Semphill. In all, there are a total of 34 contributions.

Reviews - What do customers think about Britain & Japan: Biographical Portraits (Britain & Japan)?

superb book  Dec 19, 2004
This is the fourth volume in a series. I contributed two chapters to this volume, so you might say I have a vested (but certainly not a financial!) interest. Anyway, this is a hugely important series on the history of Anglo-Japanese relations. At the time of writing this review (December 2004) Volume Five has just appeared, even bigger and (arguably) better! Anybody with an interest in the relations between these two island nations will enjoy and gain much from this book and the whole series.
The fifth volume is being officially launched by the Japan Society in London on January 18, 2005. On that date Sir Hugh Cortazzi is to lecture about the Japan Society's contribution to Japanese studies.
