Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Rethinking the Russo-Japanese War, 1904-05 presents the table of contents, preface, a list of abbreviations, acknowledgement, lists of contributors, tables and figures, a note on the conventions followed in the book, and the introduction. The book demonstrates the close working relationship between the Russians and their Korean friends throughout the Russo-Japanese war. It examines the evolution of Russia's regional policy in the Far East with particular reference to the issues posed by Manchuria and Korea, and points to the weakness of the policy that stemmed largely from the limited level of investment in facilities and personnel prior to 1904. The book explores the impact of the war on modern Japanese literature, assesses the outcomes of the Russo-Japanese War between 1904 and 1914 for the individual European empires, and extends these to include the Ottoman Empire.

Keywords: European empires; Korea; Russia's regional policy; Russo-Japanese War
