Biographical Portraits Vol V

by Sir Hugh Cortazzi (Ed),
The Japan Society/Global Oriental, 2004,
ISBN 1-901903-48-6 – 640pp – Illus. – Case

This fifth volume of portraits includes over forty British and Japanese personalities in a wide range of careers and activities whose lives and achievements in Japan and Britain are worthy of record.” – Hugh Cortazzi. Compiled by former chairman of the Japan Society, and written by distinguished scholars and researchers from both Japan and Britain, this volume is divided into six themes: The Japan Society and Imperial Personalities, Politicians and Diplomats, Naval Officers, Businessmen, Poets, Scholars and Journalists. As testament to the diversity of written material, the final section, entitled ‘Long-Term Residents in Japan, Judo Pioneers and a Philanthropist’, documents individuals as varied as Samuel Heaslett, missionary and bishop in Japan as well as Dr. Thomas Baty, former legal advisor to the Japanese foreign ministry. Like previous editions, this book holds equal interest for researchers and students of Japanese history, as well as the general reader.
