What People are Saying About This

John Hilliker

This book makes a significant original contribution as the only detailed treatment of Canada’s relations with Japan during this period. The subject is important, providing balance as it does to the usual concentration on the North Atlantic as the focus of Canada’s external relations.

From the Publisher

"This book makes a significant original contribution as the only detailed treatment of Canada’s relations with Japan during this period. The subject is important, providing balance as it does to the usual concentration on the North Atlantic as the focus of Canada’s external relations."—John Hilliker, author of Canada’s Department of External Affairs

"Canadian work in regards to Japan has mostly centred on missionary activity, with little recently on diplomatic and trade issues. It is certainly an excellent time, then, to have Meehan’s well—written book on Canadian—Japanese relations appear."—A. Hamish Ion, author of The Cross in the Dark Valley: The Canadian Protestant Missionary Movement in the Japanese Empire, 1931—1945
