Reviews - What do customers think about British Envoys In Japan, 1859-1972?

important collection of scholarly biographies  Mar 11, 2005
I must first declare an interest - I wrote one of the two essays on Sir Ernest Satow in this book. The other one is by Dr. Peter Kornicki of Cambridge University. (My essay also appears in "Britain & Japan: Biographical Portraits Volume 4" which is also available on this
The aim of the book, as editor-in-chief Hugh Cortazzi tells us in the Preface, is "to describe the personalities and activities of senior British diplomats in Tokyo and their role in the formulation and execution of policy towards Japan in the period from 1859-1972." He adds later that "This is not a diplomatic history of relations between Britain and Japan. It focuses on the British personalities involved at the diplomatic level rather than on the issues which dominated relations between the two countries. Naturally, however, themes such as treaty revision, the Anglo-Japanese Alliance, and frictions over China and Manchuria...feature prominently in some of the profiles."
This really is a must-read for anyone interested in Anglo-Japanese relations from the official, diplomatic viewpoint.

Ian Ruxton, editor of Sir Ernest Satow's Private Letters to W.G. Aston and F.V. Dickins: The Correspondence of a Pioneer Japanologist from 1870 to 1918 (Paperback), also available on this site.
