Asia for the Asians
China in the Lives of Five Meiji Japanese
"An important and thought-provoking contribution to our understanding of Sino-Japanese relations in the Meiji period, especially Japanese perceptions and thinking about the relationship. . . Harrell successfully makes the case for a greater appreciation of the diversity and sincerity of Japanese thinking on China, and this should not be obscured by the history of the Second Sini-JapaneseWar . . . I was repeatedly impressed by just how fraught the Japanese engagement with China was . . . The narrative and the arguments are set in prose which should be accessible to a wide range of readers, including undergraduates. —China Quarterly
