About the Author:

Hugh Cortazzi, GCMG, was British Ambassador to Japan 1980-84 and Chairman of the Japan Society 1985-95.

He has written extensively on Japan. His many books include Isles of Gold: Antique Maps of Japan (Weatherhill, 1983), The Japanese Achievement (Sidgwick & Jackson, 1990) and his memoir Japan and Back and Places Elsewhere (Global Oriental, 1998). This is the fourth volume of Britain and Japan: Biographical Portraits he has edited for the Japan Society, together with Japan Experiences: Fifty Years, One Hundred Views (Japan Library, 2001) and British Envoys in Japan, 1859-1972 (Global Oriental, 2004). Most recently, he published a translation of Crown Prince Naruhito's account of his years at Oxford, entitled The Thames and I (Global Oriental, 2006).

He continues to be closely involved in the field of Anglo-Japanese relations, writes regularly for the Japan Times and other publications, and is currently researching several new projects.
