(p.121) 6 The Sino-Japanese War and its Aftermath
The Pursuit of Power in Modern Japan 1825–1995


Oxford University Press

It may have been a natural sequence that the imperial constitution, a landmark of the Meiji ‘civilization’, preceded the outbreak of the Sino-Japanese War, a hallmark of Japan's ‘westernization’ in her relations with Asian neighbours. The two facts can be paired as the two ultimate achievements of 19th-century Japan in her effort for modernization. The Kanghwa Treaty (1876) and the Treaty of Tientsin (1885) are described. The chapter also deals with Japan and China in Korea, and the Tonghak rebellion and the Japanese decision for war. In addition, the campaign for the Sino-Japanese War is reviewed. It then outlines the Shimonoseki Treaty and the Triple Intervention. Next, it summarizes the Korea and the Far Eastern crisis after the Triple Intervention. Moreover, the high-tide of nationalism is shown.
