Japanese Imperialism, 1894-1945

Not yet rated | write a review
This is a study of the origins and nature of Japanese imperialism from the Sino-Japanese war of 1894-1895 through to 1945. Japan is the only Asian country in modern times to have built both a successful industrial economy and an empire, and it is Professor Beasley''s contention that these two phenomena are closely related. Japan''s aims were influenced by its experience of western imperialism and its own growing industrialization, but as external circumstances changed and Japan''s capacity grew, so did its needs and ambitions. The creation of the Japanese empire is one of the most remarkable exploits of the twentieth century. Professor Beasley has provided a much-needed scholarly investigation into its development, expansion, and eventual destruction.

`W. G. Beasley''s fascinating, lucid, and brilliant account ... provides the best balanced explanation ever written about the complex factors that together pushed Japan to impose its power on its neighbours.'' Journal of Asian Studies
