Japan comes of age : Mutsu Munemitsu and the revision of the unequal treaties by Louis G Perez( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the sweltering summer of 1894 Foreign Minister Mutsu Munemitsu knelt before the Japanese emperor Meiji to report that Japan's "long nightmare" was over at last. After forty years of humiliation, Japan was ridding itself of the hateful "Unequal Treaties." These treaties had been imposed upon a politically divided and militarily weakened nation by powerful mercantilist Western nations in mid-century. The treaties had hindered Japan's economic development because of discriminatory tariff restrictions, they had poisoned Japan's foreign relations, and they had truncated its legal sovereignty by virtue of extraterritoriality." "The final six months of negotiations are carefully examined, employing Mutsu's extensive personal and official correspondence as well as telegrams and secret British and Japanese documents."--Jacket

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Mutsu Munemitsu is a famous and controversial figure in modern Japanese history because he was firmly in charge of the foreign policy of Japan during three of its most important milestones: the revision of the "unequal treaties", the Sino-Japanese War and the Triple Intervention. Most historians agree that the revision of the treaties was a watershed in Japan's history because it represents both a culmination of a national crusade to rid the country of the humiliating treaties and also the birth of a
