Building upon a previous study of Japan’s colonial empire, this volume examines the period from 1895 to 1937 when Japan’s economic, social, political, and military influence in China expanded so rapidly that it supplanted the influence of Western powers competing there. These fourteen essays discuss how Japan’s “informal empire” emerged in China and how that “empire” influenced Japan’s own internal development. “Describes in rich detail Japan’s organization of a wide range of cultural, educational, economic, military, and bureaucratic institutions that formed the mainstays of Japanese influence in China along with the trading, manufacturing, intelligence-gathering, and political intriguing which they managed.”  [Wen-hsin Yeh, The Journal of Asian Studies]
