About this book

Introduction

The study of modern China and Japan have separately become major arenas of scholarship over the past three decades in the west, but little work has been done that brings these two histories together for the period prior to the twentieth century. This work does just that. Many of these texts were built on fanciful embellishments of stories that migrated from one land to the other, but the unique qualities of the Sino-Japanese cultural bond seem to have conditioned the interaction.
