About this title


Excerpt from The Russian Push Toward Japan: Russo-Japanese Relations, 1697-1875

World War. As late as June, - Only two months before Russia plunged into the Far Eastern holocaust - a former prime minister of Japan and one-time ambassador to Moscow told the Soviet ambassa dor that if the Soviet Army and the Japanese Navy were to join forces, Japan and the Soviet Union together would become the strongest powers in the world.

The Japanese attitude toward Russia today cannot be understood solely in terms of political and economic ideology. It has been shaped by centuries of intercourse between Russians and Japanese, dating back to l 697, the year of the first recorded encounter of a Japanese cast away and a Russian explorer. What were some of the lasting first impressions made by the Japanese and the Russians on each other? What was the nature of Russian pressure on Japan? Did a flourishing trade with Russia materialize after the opening of Japan or were Russian pleas for trade merely a cloak for more sinister designs? By whom was Russian policy toward Japan determined and how con sistent was this policy over the years? Questions such as these sug gested the need for a detailed narrative of early russo-japanese relations prior to a survey of dealings in the modern period.
