Summary "After the horrors of World War II in Asia - not least the systematic appalling mistreatment of Allied prisoners-of-war by the Japanese military - few would have predicted that Britain's relationship with Japan would flourish into a booming partnership of economic interdependence by the start of the twenty-first century. This ambitious examination of Anglo-Japanese relations over the course of the twentieth century charts the history of how both nations overcame many years of prejudice and bitter conflict to form a bond fused by financial, political and military cooperation."--BOOK JACKET.
