Review Winner of the JaDe Prize 2010 awarded by the German Foundation for the Promotion of Japanese-German Culture and Science Relations “Between Japan's victory over China in the first Sino-Japanese war and its victory over Russia ten years later fundamental changes took place in the East Asian realmchanges in the Japanese public's image of itself and its position in the world and in its stance toward a weakened and increasingly marginalized China, changes in how the Western powers viewed China and Japan and how China and Japan in turn viewed the West. Building his narrative around key events from the troubled interwar decade, Matthias Zachmann presents a revealing picture of how these changes evolved, the inner tension among Japanese motives at different junctures, and such inherently slippery notions as “pan-Asianism,” what it meant to be “civilized,” to engage in “war,” or for a stronger country to adopt a stance of “friendship” toward a weaker one. The perspectives developed in this book, often psychologically informed, deepen our understanding of Sino-Japanese relations leading up to the Pacific War; they also shed light on the far less unequal relationship that has emerged between China and Japan in more recent years.” – Paul A. Cohen Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies Harvard University, USA “A hundred years ago, Japan emerged as a major power. Today China is fast asserting its influence in the world arena. How a non-Western nation defines its identity and destiny is a question that has serious implications for the West as well as for other countries. The ways in which Japans political and intellectual elites argued about the nature and direction of national policy at the turn of the twentieth century and the choices they made, as Matthias Zachmann skillfully traces them, were to have fateful consequences for East Asia and the wider world. The book will not only serve as an excellent introduction to that story but also offer clues to understanding contemporary Chinese domestic and foreign affairs.” – Akira Iriye, Harvard University, USA “Urs Matthias Zachmann has produced a work that is fresh and much neededa strength that sets the study apart because of rich materials carefully mined around this topic for the first timeStudents of modern China needto read this book” – Douglas Reynolds, The China Quarterly, 201, March 2010, pp. 223-225 “…Zachmann has undoubtedly made a most important contribution to Meiji era history and the history of Sino-Japanese relations, which should have both an immediate impact as well as lasting significance for generations of researchers and general interested readers to come. I recommend it highly.”- Richard John Lynn, Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland (2010) 20, pp. 393-395 “…meticulously researched…what Zachmann captures superbly is the intensity and fluidity of debate…” – Thomas David DuBois, Japanese Studies 30.1 (May 2010), pp. 147-149 “…Zachmann provides us with rare insight on how the Japanese 'public' viewed China from 1895 to 1904…The thoroughness of Zachmanns research convinces the reader that this conclusion presents the most likely understanding of the attitude toward China held by the average Japanese person, and thus makes this book an important companion piece” – Rustin Gates, Pacific Affairs 83:3 (September 2010), pp. 618-620 “Zachmanns work, in describing and analyzing Japanese discourse about China, provides good coverage of the historical narrative leading up to and during these events. He offers succinct summaries of the events themselves before devoting most of his attention to parsing newspaper opinions. This book effectively presents the complex and dynamic relationship between Japanese ideas about China, Japanese self-perception, real power, and an ever-present awareness of the gaze of the West. This is important reading for students of modern Chinese, Japanese history, and would provide helpful background information for students of Korean and Taiwanese history as well.” – Winifred Chang, Journal of Asian Studies 80:1 (Feb. 2011), pp. 251-253.
