About the Authors
  • First published in 1913, as the second edition of a 1904 original, this book forms part of the Cambridge Historical Series. It presents an attempt 'to give a connected history of the relations which have prevailed between the nations of the West and the Empires of China, Japan, Annam, and Siam'. The text begins with a discussion of early interactions between East and West, before moving through to events of the early twentieth century. A detailed bibliography is also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in historiography and perspectives on the history of East-West relations.
