Expansion into Korea, Manchuria, and north China was the inner ring of Japanese imperialism. The prospect of Japanese penetration of south-east Asia, which was what creating an ‘outer empire’ involved, raised issues of much greater sensitivity. Japanese fears of Russia were a constant factor in these moves. Japanese disputes with Britain in this period arose almost entirely with respect to China. It could be argued that Anglo-Japanese rivalry, more than concern over China, accounted for the American government's growing hostility to Japan in these years. It was from the summer of 1940, when German victories suddenly improved the chances of a Japanese advance, that the United States put economic pressure on Japan.
