This book is a remarkable attempt to understand and summarize the current and historical Sino-Japanese relationship: two countries bound by ties of history, culture, geography, and economic complementarity. Through this investigation, the contributors are also able to broaden our understandingof contemporary changes in international relations, and to consider the implications of changes in the Sino-Japanese relationship for the wider world. All contributors are well-known experts in their fields. This volume deals with the history of contact, the economic imperatives driving the links,the diplomatic and political manoeuvrings in which both countries indulge, and the antipathies that mean the Sino-Japanese `special relationship' is far from trouble-free. This book should become an invaluable reference work for academics and students.

Editorial Reviews

`A good introduction to the past and current state of Sino-Japanese relations ... this is a valuable collection of essays, with something for both the specialist and the non-specialist and a sense of timeliness and cohesion often lacking from conference volumes. The sixteen-page bibliographyof material cited is unusual in such a work, but adds to the general value of the book.'Asian Affairs
