Excerpt from Japan's Inheritance: The Country, Its People, and Their Destiny

Wanted - the truth about Japan. An American writer, after complaining of "the world-wide false impression of Japan" which has been given by "the eclogues of European visitors," declares it to be the "vital concern" of his countrymen to know as much as possible of "nothing but the truth."

Whether or not he succeeded in replacing "the world-wide false impression" by one nearer the mark - and no Occidental taking up a strongly anti-Japanese attitude can successfully interpret the spirit of this nation, the leader of the East - Mr. Price Collier is right in saying that knowledge of things Japanese is of real concern to the American people. With them, in large measure, it rests to determine the manner of the meeting of East and West.
