Concentrating on a key neglected aspect of the modernization process in Japan during the Meiji era, this volume treats in depth the assistance given to the Meiji regime by foreign visitors. One contribution takes a fresh look at the Meiji modernizers who constitute the ancestors of the tightly knit establishment that guides the contemporary super-power. Somewhat more neglected in previous studies on this period are the foreign visitors who were present in Japan both to witness the changes and to assist the Japanese in the transition to modernity.Clark L.
