East Asia, and particularly Japan, is often omitted from both popular and academic accounts of the First World War. This is evident not just in the Western historiography of the conflict but also in the Chinese and Japanese histories of the war, and does not do justice to the many ways in which the conflict shaped Japan both at the time and in its aftermath. Yet, if the First World War is to be truly understood as a 'world war', it has to be seen in its global context. In order to look at some of these issues, Japan and the Great War brings together seven internationally renowned experts on Japanese and Asian history. These scholars investigate, with innovative methodological approaches, various aspects of the Japanese experience during and after the First World War.
