During the Meiji Era, of 1868-1912, British influence in Japan was stronger than that of any other foreign power. Although role models were sought from Englishmen and Scotsmen, whether diplomats, engineers, educators or philosophers, the first priority for the Japanese was to achieve a transfer of industrial and technical skills. As important customers, who brought good profits to British industry, the Japanese were accommodated when they stipulated on awarding a contract that their own people should work in office, shipyard or factory. Much new research material discovered in Japan, England and Scotland has enabled the detailed examination of a relationship - with Britain as Senior and Japan as Junior partner - which lasted until 1914. It was on these foundations that Japan was able subsequently to build a great industrial nation.

The Restoration of the Emperor of Japan at the beginning of 1868 enabled the country to embark on a course of action which was to bring it, within a remarkably short period of time, to the status of a world power. During the 44 years for which the Emperor chose the name Meiji, or "Enlightenment", Britain was the most influential foreign power. This study is concerned on the one hand with the great response of Japan to the industrial, educational and military challenges involved and on the other with the reaction of British entrepreneurs, engineers and educators to the opportunities afforded them by the Japanese connection. The author argues that this relationship laid the foundations for Japan's industrial greatness. Olive Checkland is also the author of "Philanthropy in Victorian Scotland" and "Industry and Ethos in Scotland, 1832-1914" with S.G.Checkland.
