Japanese prisoners of war by Philip Towle( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the Second World War the Japanese were stereotyped in the European and American imagination as fanatical, cruel and almost inhuman. This view is unhistorical and simplistic. It fails to recognise that the Japanese were acting at a time of supreme national crisis and it fails to take account of their own historical tradition. The essays in Japanese Prisoners of War, by both Western and Japanese scholars, explore the question from a balanced viewpoint, looking at it in the light of longer-term influences, notably the Japanese attempt to establish themselves as an honorary white race. The book also addresses the other side of the question, looking at the treatment of Japanese prisoners in Allied captivity -- book jacket

Democracy and peacemaking : negotiations and debates, 1815-1973 by Philip Towle( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Democracy and Peacemaking: Negotiations and Debates, 1815-1973 surveys the post-war peace settlements of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including the Vienna Congress of 1815, the Treaty of Versailles, the peace settlements of the Second World War, the peace talks after the Korean war and the Paris Peace Accords of 1973." "These negotiations have been chosen because of their intrinsic historical importance for what they reveal about the effects of the development of democracy, nationalism and secularisation on the process of peacemaking, which had radically altered since the time of the French Revolution." "Democracy and Peacemaking: Negotiations and Debates, 1815-1973 is a valuable and up-to-date account of the process of peacemaking and draws on the most recent historical thinking."--Jacket

Britain and Japan in the twentieth century : one hundred years of trade and prejudice by Philip Towle( Book )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After the horrors of World War II in Asia - not least the systematic appalling mistreatment of Allied prisoners-of-war by the Japanese military - few would have predicted that Britain's relationship with Japan would flourish into a booming partnership of economic interdependence by the start of the twenty-first century. This ambitious examination of Anglo-Japanese relations over the course of the twentieth century charts the history of how both nations overcame many years of prejudice and bitter conflict to form a bond fused by financial, political and military cooperation."--Jacket
From ally to enemy : Anglo-Japanese military relations 1900-45 by Philip Towle( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Chinese and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study, closely researched by Philip Towle over the past thirty years, is principally concerned with the military relations between Britain and Japan during the first half of the twentieth century and the ambivalence, misunderstandings and misconceptions that informed their relationship, described by the author as 'an epic tragedy'. Following the signing of the Anglo-Japanese Alliance in 1902, Japan was held up as a model in Britain and Britain in Japan. But within a generation, the British came to see Japan as the first country to challenge the League of Nations and to begin a new age of imperialism. Conversely, the Japanese armed forces saw Britain as the greatest obstacle to Japanese ambitions in China and elsewhere. In 1936, Lieutenant Commander Tota Ishimaru's book "Japan Must Fight Britain" was printed in Britain, its significance ignored at many levels, and five years later the two countries were at war. The feelings stirred up by that 'conflict', notes Towle, still have resonance 'today'. "From Ally to Enemy" brings together a most important body of research that is long overdue in book form and will be widely welcomed by historians and researchers of the period, as well as those seeking more detailed analysis of specific aspects of the pre-war Anglo-Japanese military relationship. -- Book jacket
