Chapter Summary

There has been a growing interest in India with the rest of Asia and this interest has now become much wider and deeper, partly because of the growing economic power of many Asian countries, and in particular because of the rise of China, as both an economic and political force in international politics. Okakura Tenshin was an important figure within the intellectual history of Japan, as he played an influential role in the debates among his contemporaries both within and outside Japan. Unlike his more famous Japanese contemporaries, Okakura visited China as well as India, and his writings bear the influence of his meeting with peoples in these countries. Okakura's writings were a distilled essence of his view that Western domination had cut at the roots of Asian cultures; it had colonized them politically and culturally.
