Abstract

J. E. Hoare. 2018. Culture, Power and Politics in Treaty-Port Japan, 1854-1899 (two volumes) Folkestone: Renaissance Books ISBN 9781898823612 Early on in Jim Hoare’s academic career, his PhD supervisor William Gerald Beasley suggested that he would not remain always ‘a treaty port man’. Beasley was both wrong and right: Hoare’s professional life in the UK’s Foreign & Commonwealth Office took him far beyond the subject of his doctoral research, but his fascination with the site of 19th century contact between Japan and the Western powers persisted alongside his day job. This two volume set represents a selection of sources collected by Hoare over 50 years of research, covering a broad array of material, both primary and secondary, on topics as varied as treaty texts and negotiations, economic history, the language of the ports, and whimsical poetry produced by their residents.
