Japan’s Economic Diplomacy with China, 1945-1978

Soeya, Yoshihide


Book written by 1992 Abe Fellow Yoshihide Soeya based on his project “Indochina in the US-Japan-ASEAN Triangle: Implications for US-Japan Relations in the Post-Cold War Era.”

This book is a comprehensive study on Japan’s postwar relations with China up until the end of the 1970s. The study is particularly strong on the detailed account of Japan’s deep economic involvement with China initiated by a complex group of pro-China Japanese. It stands out in analytically placing the unique aspect of the postwar history of Sino-Japanese relations in an overall political context of Japanese diplomacy.
