Chapter Summary

It was not just the young generation who gradually indicated that the historical verdict of the Second World War did not matter to them, but it seems as if a new retrospective look at the overall course of Sino-Japanese relations in the period from the Meiji Restoration up to the invasion of 1937 had been cast by the academic culture as well. The Sino-Japanese War arose from the so-called Korean question. War was declared early in August 1894, after Japanese and Chinese troops, which had entered Korea following the popular revolt of the so-called Tong-Hak, later clashed in some scattered incidents. Nevertheless, roughly sixty years after the end of the empire, Japan is the second economic and military power of the world. More or less consciously, the background of present scholarly and mediative appraisals of the Sino-Japanese War has being taking shape within this context.

Keywords: Chinese troops; Meiji restoration; second world war; Sino-Japanese relations; Tong-Hak
