Japanese Envoys in Britain 1862-1964

by Professor Ian Nish (Ed),
The Japan Society/Global Oriental Publishing, 2007,
ISBN 9781905246328, pp 255.

This collection of essays compiled by Ian Nish and published by the Japan Society provides a comprehensive understanding into the history of diplomatic relations between Japan and Britain from 1862 up to Ambassador Ohno Katsumi’s highly successful six year assignment in 1964. Written by a total of twelve authors, half of whom are Japanese, topics discussed include the history of Japanese Embassy buildings and a personal memoir by Ayako Ishizaka entitled “A Diplomat’s Daughter in the 1930s.” This book succeeds in not only providing a rich historical account of diplomatic relations but highlights the idiosyncrasies and peculiarities of life as an envoy.
