about this item

This volume contributes to an emerging field of German Asian studies by bringing together cutting-edge scholarship from international scholars in a variety of fields. The chapters survey the history of German-Japanese relations from 1860 to 2000, examining many facets of their dynamic, ever-evolving relationship. While the focus is on transnational encounters between Germany and Japan, the volume also acknowledges in some instances the usefulness of comparative studies. Moreover, by rejecting traditional dichotomies between the East and the West, the chapters gathered here highlight the rather intimate ways in which Germans and Japanese cooperated and negotiated the challenges of modernity in a range of topics that include culture, diplomacy, geography, history, law, literature, philosophy, politics, and sports.
