Britain and Japan in the Twentieth Century by Philip Towle
Book DescriptionAfter 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 20th century charts the fascinating history of how both nations overcame many years of prejudice and bitter conflict to form a bond fused by financial, political and military cooperation. In the 1930s, many Japanese became convinced that their exports were being kept out of India by British tariffs and it was not until the 1980s that the British government fully accepted the futility of any protectionist impulse and encouraged Japanese companies to invest in Britain. Today, each country not only assists the other economically but also no longer blames the other for its own domestic problems. "Britain and Japan in the Twentieth Century" elucidates how both nations have struggled to achieve stability and harmony in their relations with each other in the face of contrasting cultural identities.

Books By Author Philip Towle
Going to War, Hardback (April 2009)
Going to War overturns conventional views of the role of public opinion, the armed forces, parliamentarians, NGOs and writers in the formation of British debates about impending wars. It shows the pressures and the reasons which have led to Britain's involvement in so many conflicts.
Temptations of Power, Hardback (August 2006)
Examines the security dilemma which confronted President George W Bush when terrorists proved on 9/11 that they could wound even the greatest of military powers. This book views that the response was influenced by neo-conservative exaggeration of the efficacy of military power and belief in the US ability to change the world and its own image.
Democracy and Peace Making, Hardback (August 2000)
A study of the changing objectives and role of postwar peace-making over the last two centuries.
Japanese Prisoners of War, Hardback (July 1999)» View all books by Philip Towle
During World War II the Japanese were stereotyped in the European imagination as fanatical, cruel, almost inhuman. This collection aims to see this issue from an historical view, from a western and Japanese perspective. It also looks at the treatment of Japanese prisoners in Allied captivity.
