Excerpt

While collecting material for this book I have received valuable advice from many scholars. I would like to thank in particular Professor Iwao Seiichi, Professor Oka Yoshitake, and Professor Hosoya Chihiro. The staff of the Japanese Foreign Ministry Archives (Gaikō Shiryōkan) have always been exceptionally helpful whenever I have had occasion to consult the records in their care. In London I owe many debts of gratitude to former colleagues and students at the School of Oriental and African Studies, especially to Mr Brian Hickman of the School's Library. The School has on several occasions contributed to the cost of my research visits to Japan. So did the British Academy (Leverhulme Visiting Professorship) and the Japan Foundation. To them all I express my thanks.
