Chapter Summary

Japan and Russia wanted to prevent the Western powers present in eastern Asia from achieving economic advantages through the exploitation of China, which could not utilize them itself due to the underdeveloped state of its economy. The Philippines were on an American path to independence as early as 1905 and already by that time no longer expected Japanese support in this matter. Japan remained a model of reform for many, but from 1908 until immediately before the outbreak of the Pacific War, never regained the status it had held in the early Vietnamese emancipation discourses. As was the case in Vietnam, the analysis of the Burmese reception of the Russo-Japanese War must also begin with a quotation that looks to the past. The assertion that the Japanese victory became a world-wide stimulus for anti-colonial resistance movements must at least be called into question with regard to Southeast Asia.
