The Anglo-Japanese alliance : the diplomacy of two island empires, 1894-1907 by Ian Nish( Book )

39 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in English and held by 1,664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Professor Nish deals with one of the most important aspects of far eastern politics in the critical period between 1894 and 1907. His object is to demonstrate how Britain and Japan, at first separately and later jointly, reacted to Russian encroachments in China and east Asia; he is concerned also with the policies of the other European powers and of the U.S., to whose hostility towards the Anglo-Japanese alliance after 1905 Britain showed herself increasingly sensitive. First published in 1966, this title is part of the Bloomsbury Academic Collections series
Japanese foreign policy in the interwar period by Ian Nish( )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and Japanese and held by 1,241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive, up-to-date analysis of Japanese policy between the two world wars utilizes both English and Japanese sources to present Japan as an independent agent, not a state whose policy was determined by the actions of other countries. Beginning with Japan's disappointment with the Versailles Peace Treaty in 1919, Nish examines the roots of Japanese discontent and feelings that ambitions in China were being unreasonably restrained. He explains British and American policies in the region as reactive, but concludes that their responses helped to determine which factions would dominate
Work and society : labour and human resources in East Asia by Sek Hong Ng( )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a memorial volume which pays tribute to the late Professor Keith Thurley. It collects a number of critical and insightful essays which discuss some of the key issues affecting corporate management, human resource development and the workplace in the current context of East Asian societies, to which Professor Thurley was closely linked in his scholarly career at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). The perspectives which are canvassed in these writings are diverse but well integrated, introducing the readers to how work and society in this dynamic part of the world can be viewed from a mix of academic disciplines including management and organizational studies, sociology, psychology, political economy, international studies, history, industrial relations and labour law. This book is an important piece of benchmark reference for academics, students, managers and other practising specialists who wish to update their understanding and knowledge about people in work and business in East Asia today

"Driven by two imperatives - the need to identify, classify and assess Western technology and culture, as well as advance a dialogue for reviewing the so-called 'unequal treaties' - the new Meiji government of 1868 despatched a top-level ministerial team to the West, arriving first in the United States in January 1872. In all, the mission spent 205 days in America, followed by 122 days in Britain and two months in France, and travelled widely in Europe, including visits to Belgium, Germany, Russia, Sweden and Italy." "Drawing on the papers given at the triennial conference of the European Association of Japanese Studies in 1997 (which coincided with the 125th anniversary of the Iwakura mission).

Japan's struggle with internationalism : Japan, China, and the League of Nations, 1931-3 by Ian Nish( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lord Lytton, the author of the League of Nations report on the Manchurian Crisis of 1931-1933, wrote: 'if only it was with the professors of the University of Tokyo and men like that I could make peace in a week'. It was widely recognized that there were liberal internationalists in Japan who were opposed to expansion in China and were trying to prevent it - ineffectively as it turned out. As the military advanced into China, the internationalists progressively found themselves with their backs to the wall and had difficulty in resisting pressure that Japan should pull out of the League of Nations."--BOOK JACKET. "This is a study of the Manchurian and Shanghai crises, the first serious confrontation between Japan and the world community. Based on the study of a wide range of Japanese sources, both public and private, as well as western sources including the Lytton papers, the diaries of Sir Miles Lampson, the papers of the League of Nations and the letters of Sir Reginald Johnston, it throws light on the struggles both within Japan and among League enthusiasts to ensure that Japan, the Asian state which was at once most stable and economically most successful, should not end up in isolation from western nations."--BOOK JACKET
