Editorial Reviews


"In this slim but ambitious volume Douglas Henning demonstrates the power of preconception in international relations...this book deserves a wide readership."

-Pacific Affairs, Vol. 75, No. 4

"This is a marvelously perceptive and nuanced rendering of American attitudes on some very large and complicated themes. It is must reading not only for students of U.S-Japanese relations but for everyone interested in the cultural dimensions of international history."

-Journal of American History (March 2002)

"Makes a significant contribution, joining the growing studies that help us construct the nineteenth century along new lines.”

-American Historical Review
