What People are Saying

"This work is highly important. Sino-Japanese relations are becoming increasingly problematic and have profound implications for Asian and global security and stability. Ming Wan's work presents a wealth of empirical material in a clear and readable fashion, with an analytical argument that is sophisticated and subtle."—Mike Mochizuki, George Washington University

"This book advances well beyond existing publications in its breadth of coverage of Sino-Japanese relations and in its depth of understanding of how and why they have been changing. It is exceptionally balanced, drawing on unprecedented research into both Chinese and Japanese reasoning and combining the two effectively."—Gil Rozman, Princeton University
