Scholars from Europe, Asia, and the United States evaluate the historical significance of Japan's empire in the context of times shaped by imperialism, nationalism, totalitarianism, modernity, and war. Eschewing simple generalizations, they explore new primary sources to present multilayered views of various aspects of Japan-East Asia interactions. The articles are grouped into three broad themes: the domestic foundations of Japanese imperialism, the workings of the Japanese empire in East Asia, and the postwar legacy of the Japanese empire.
The domestic foundations of imperialism are examined by assessing the importance of Asia in the politics of metropolitan Japan, the development and pursuit of visions of pan-Asianism and technocracy, and the formation and maintenance of elite networks to further imperialist goals. The forces in support of anti-Japanese boycotts, conflicts within the Japanese community in China, and sub-imperialist moves toward economic expansion in Taiwan are three topics analyzing the workings of Japanese imperialism in East Asia. Finally, the empire's postwar legacy, especially for postwar Sino-Japanese relations, is discussed in the cases of economic and technical cooperation, Japan's China policy in the early Cold War years, and the process leading to the reestablishment of diplomatic ties between China and Japan.
