Beijing Stokes Japan Hatred

Monday, April 18, 2005 Posted: 03:55 PM JST

In an interview by Catherine Armitage and Peter Alford of the Sunday Mail, Hu Jia, a leading anti-Japanese activist has blamed the Beijing Government for the widespread and sometimes violent protests across China. "The Government is playing the card of public opinion," Hu Jia is quoted as saying.

"They think the card of public opinion is better than the card of the government in the eyes of the outside world." Hu is an advocate of Chinese sovereignty over the Diaoyudao islands, claimed by Japan as the Senkaku islands, so his statements are impressive and enlightening.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
