Item description for The English-Language Press Networks of East Asia, 1918-45 by Peter O'Connor...
The English-language newspapers of Japan, and Korea occupied a narrow but significant segment of the public sphere in East Asia in the inter-war years. As forums of opinion on Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Western interests in East Asia, they also served as vehicles of propaganda, particularly during the crisis-ridden 1930's and the Pacific War.
This study is the first to assess the combined significance of the English-language newspapers of East Asia in this period. It not only posits the English-language press papers as press networks in the international media history of East Asia but also relates them to media developments in the 'British world' linking Fleet Street to the Empire and Dominions, and to the rise of the United States as a broker of international opinion on and in the Asia-Pacific.
With this examination of most of the English-language newspapers published in East Asia in this period, the author demonstrates that these publications formed distinct networks in terms of their commercial affiliations, official access and the editorial positions they took on the key issues of the day, with particular reference to Japan's imperial project in East Asia.
