The Japanese and Sun Yat-sen
Author: Marius B. Jansen
Publisher: Cambridge, Harvard University Press (1954)
Professor Jansen has sought to uncover and to analyze the motivations and operations of Japan's vigorous nationalists of the Meiji era and, at a later time, of the Japanese government and to relate them to the activiteis of the contemporary Chinese revolutionaries. The result is a better understanding of the working of Meiji politics, of the unfolding of Japanese expansionism, and of the vicissitudes of the Chinese nationalist revolution. Especially noteworthy are the reveleations concerning Japanese foreign policy at such critical moments as the Boxer Rebellion, the Chinese Revolution of 1911-12, and World War I.
