This review is from: Makers of Modern World Subscription: Prince Saionji: Japan: Japan - Makers of the Modern World (Hardcover)
The Japanese participation in the Paris Peace Conference is among its less explored aspects in English-language histories. Jonathan Clements is well equipped to fill that gap with this lively portrait of the senior Japanese negotiator. Japanese interests in the settling of post-WW1 international arrangements were comparatively limited but, nevertheless, highly contentious: a bid for a racial non-discrimination clause to be inserted in the League Covenant and for recognition of its territorial claims in China. These are quite well dealt with by Clements, and his book can serve as a reliable introduction to the two issues. But the more valuable aspects of this volume are its biographical elements and backgrounding of Japanese social and political conditions at the time.
