Japan's concern for defending cherished Japanese values during a century of fantastic change (1859-1956) is one of the key themes to be drawn from the ten contributing writers in this volume. "Japan sought to meet the challenge of the West", note the editors, "through relying upon State Shintoism including the symbol of a powerful emperor, and pursuing an expansionist foreign policy in which strident claims to be liberating subjugated peoples within colonial territories were a cloak to conceal Japanese imperialism". The papers published in this volume have been drawn from the History, Politics and International Relations sections of the 1988 Conference of the European Association of Japanese Studies.

Von Siebold's second visit to Japan; the Osaka "Asahi Shimbun" and the "Osaka Mainichi Shimbun" in the late 19th century; the Japanese pure anarchists and the theory of anarchist-communism; the strategic meaning of the 1911 Anglo-Japanese alliance; emperorship as a national symbol in the Japan of the Taisho era (1912-1926); the Batavia Conference of 1934 and its importance to Dutch-Japanese relations in the decade before Pearl Harbor; Admiral Yonai Mitsumasa as Navy Minister (1937-39); Japanese occupation policy in Singapore, 1942-45; Great Britain and the Japanese Peace Treaty, 1951; the Soviet-Japanese normalization and foreign policy ideas of the Hatoyama group.
