Negotiating with Imperialism: The Unequal Treaties and the Culture of Japanese Diplomacy


"Negotiating with Imperialism" is the first book to explain the emergence of modern Japan through the early period of treaty relations that began in 1858 with the signing of the "unequal" commercial treaty with the United States. In a compelling analysis of the interplay among assassinations, Western bombardment of Japanese cities and fertile cultural and intellectual exchange, Auslin offers a persuasive reading of the birth of modern Japan and its struggle to determine its future relations with the world.
