Overview

Japanese Studies of Modern China: A Bibliographical Guide to Historical and Social Science Research on the 19th and 20th Centuries by John King Fairbank, Sumiko Yamamoto

This volume, completed in mid-1953, is reissued in 1971 without revision because it seems to have stood the test of time: in the intervening seventeen years the corpus of Japanese writing on China which it describes has become of greater, not less, interest to Western researchers on China. There are more of them today and they are more often able to read Japanese. Study of modern China has not diminished in importance, or has the Japanese contribution to it.
