Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This is the first comprehensive collection of pen-portraits of every envoy who ran the British mission in Japan-from the first Sir Rutherford Alcock, in 1859 to Sir John Pilcher in 1972, the last of the "scholar diplomats." With over thirty contributions, the volume is divided into four sections with special introductions by leading scholars in their field. In addition, there are various appendixes as well as biographical entries for all other senior diplomatic figures throughout the 112-year period. No other study of British diplomatic history and Japan offers such comprehensive coverage of "H. M. Representatives" and the events that marked their period of office. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: Following Commodore Perry's "opening" of Japan in March 1854 to American shipping at the ports of Hakodate and Shimoda (Treaty of Kanagawa), Britain was quick to follow in the October of that year with Admiral Sterling obtaining a written agreement for British ships to call at Nagasaki and Hakodate. This was followed by agreements with other major powers, such Russia and Holland, subsequently ratified through various treaties - in Britain's case the Treaty of Yedo concluded by Lord Elgin in August 1858. The following year, Rutherford Alcock was appointed Consul General, although quickly upgraded to "Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary" when it was realized that status mattered in the land of the Tycoon. With over 30 contributions, the volume is divided into four sections with special introductions by leading scholars in their field - 1859-1900 (Hugh Cortazzi), 1900-1945 (Ian Nish) and 1945-1972 (Peter Lowe), with the final part dedicated to "scholar diplomats and other outstanding diplomatic personalities and Japan" (J.E.Hoare), which includes Ernest Satow, W.G. Aston and George Sansom. In addition, there are various appendixes, including (in full) the Valedictory Despatches of Esler Dening and Oscar Morland, as well as biographical entries for all other senior diplomatic figures throughout the 112-year period.

Über den Autor: Hugh Cortazzi was British Ambassador to Japan 1980-84 and Chairman of the Japan Society 1984-94. He has written extensively on Japan. His many books include Isle of Gold: Antique Maps of Japan, The Japanese Achievement and his memoir Japan and Back and Places Elsewhere. He has edited three volumes of Britain and Japan: Biographical Portraits for the Japan Society, together with British Envoys in Japan, 1859-1972. Most recently, he published his translation of Crown Prince Naruhito's account of his years in Oxford (The Thames and I, Global Oriental, 2006). He remains highly active in the field of Anglo-Japanese relations and continues with his monthly column for the Japan Times, as well as being a regular reviewer.
