Abstract

The argument in this book is simple but non-trivial: China encountered the modern world in Japan, especially after the fall of the last samurai regime and the creation of a modern oligarchy. Chinese intellectuals who visited Japan between the US expedition to Japan in 1854 and the onset of reforms following China's loss in the First Sino-Japanese War (1894-1895) wrote about what they saw and, in so doing, introduced a new vocabulary of modernization used by the Chinese state.
