The relationship between China and Japan remains among the least understood of all the world's bilateral affairs. Akira Iriye adds clarity to the past century of this relationship in an interpretative survey. Placing it within its global context, he outlines three distinct periods - spanning the late 19th to late 20th centuries - in the history of these Asian giants. Throughout, he stresses that the future of China and Japan depends on the successful cultural interdependence of what may be the most significant pair of countries in the world today.
