This book is the pioneer scholarly work in English on the history of Japanese-Turkish relations between 1868 and 1945. Based upon original primary source documentation and introducing new perspectives, the subject offers the opportunity of tracing the history of nationalism in terms of Japanese Asianism and Pan-Turkist, Pan-Islamist currents as well as the Kemalist agenda of the new secular Turkish Republic. Topics include the exciting stories of political actors from the Turkish world and their Japanese counterparts, Japanese and Turkish intellectuals, diplomats, intelligence agents, and merchants roamed Eurasia from Istanbul through Central Asia. Many were adventurers, crossing cultural and political borders, participating in the tumultuous events surrounding the rise of Japan, the fall of the Romanov and Ottoman empires, and the establishment of the Republic of Turkey.
