Comparative Study of Korean Literature : Literary Migration (Hardcover) (Sangjin Park)
About this item
This book analyses two international incidents which impacted heavily in 20th century Japan–US Relations: the defeat of the Japanese proposed Racial Equality Bill during the Paris Peace Conference and the 1924 US immigration law that singularly excluded Japanese from immigration. Based on new materials from across Japan, the United States, Australia and Europe, this cutting edge study considers the life of Hanihara Masanao, Japanese diplomat, Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs and ultimately the Ambassador to Washington during the fateful years of 1923-24, and examines how these events contributed towards the drastic transformation of Japan, from the liberal thinking Taisho Democracy in the 1920s to the violent rise of ultra-nationalism in 1930’s Japan.
