China Eyes Japan

By Allen S. Whiting
University of California Press, 1990
228 pp. $29.95

These two countries have been interacting with each other and misunderstanding each other for a century. Do they understand each other better now than in the past? The answer seems to be no. China's understanding of Japan is particularly deficient, according to Whiting, largely because of the imposition of an official line on scholarship and the media. When younger Chinese scholars try to write internal papers or give lectures that challenge official thinking, they are not permitted to do so.
