This sixth volume of the Britain & Japan: Biographical Portraits series continues to profile the lives of key individuals, both British and Japanese, who have made significant contributions to the development of Anglo-Japanese relations.

Containing a total of thirty-three entries thoughtfully and meticulously compiled and written by some of the pre-eminent scholars of Japanese history, this edition of Biographical Portraits is divided into six sections. Categories presented include Politicians, Royal Matters, Artists, Business leaders and Literary figures.

With essays ranging from an account of Edward Heath; the first prime minister to visit post-War Japan, to co-founder of Sony Morita Akio and ending with an account of the Beatles visit to Tokyo in 1966, this book has something to appeal to all interests.
