"Coercion in Japan": A Historical Footnote
Keywords:William Elliot Griffis, Japan, US-Japan relations
AbstractBurks reveals the background of efforts in the last nineteenth century to revise the "unequal treaty status" of Japan. He basis his story on a complete file of clippings and letters concerning an incident in 1887-88 from the William Elliot Griffis Papers at Rutgers. This folio is of historic interest because it sheds new light on very delicate Japanese-American diplomatic relations at the time.
