This book is a comprehensive study on Japan's postwar relations with China up until the end of the 1970s, i.e. prior to Deng Xiaopin's reform and open-door policies. The study is particularly strong on the detailed account of Japan's deep economic involvement with China initiated by a complexgroup of pro-China Japanese. This is an important aspect of continuity in Sino-Japanese relations for three decades despite several profound fluctuations in political relations, the 1972 diplomatic normalization among others. The study also stands out in analytically placing this unique aspect ofthe postwar history of Sino-Japanese relations in an overall political context of Japanese diplomacy, depicting its structure as a combination of compliance, autonomy, and independence policy courses.
Yoshihide Soeya is Professor of Political Science in the Faculty of Law at Keio University, Tokyo. He has previously been Vistiing Fellow in the Program on International Economics and Politics at the East-West Center in Honolulu.

Editorial Reviews

`this is a superb study in political economy that goes well beyond a diplomatic economic history. Soeya insightfully synthesizes his close reading of Chinese and Japanese memoirs with contemporary accounts, supplemented by interviews in both countries.' Allen S. Whiting, The Jnl of Asian Studies, May 2000.
