  • Pablo de la Flor
Part of the St Antony’s/Macmillan Series book series


The surprising election of Alberto Fujimori as President of Peru has brought to public attention the special nature of Peruvian-Japanese relations. Peru was the first Latin American country to establish official contacts with Japan and to receive a large contingent of Japanese immigrants during the early part of this century. Today, the 80,000-strong community of Japanese descendants in Peru is one of the largest in the world.
