Chapter Summary

This chapter shows the networks of the English-language newspapers of East Asia in action: reporting, debating and campaigning on the key issues of the day, largely in Japan, during the years 1918-30. Therefore the focus is on the debates between the Japan Chronicle network and the Foreign Ministry network, largely as demonstrated in the pages of the Japan Times. The most consistently debated topics in the period 1918-1945 were: Japanese militarism, expansion in China, the administration of Korea and the Korean independence movement, Japan's population problem and emigration, naval disarmament, and Japan's political development. The Japan Chronicle dwelt on Japan's severity in quelling the Korean disturbances, flagging its readers with punchy headlines and editorials that drove home the point that while Japan pleaded for racial equality in Paris, Japanese soldiers and 'gendarmes' were firing villages and churches in Korea.

Keywords: East Asia; English-language newspapers; foreign ministry; Japan Chronicle; Japan Times; Japanese militarism; Korean independence movement
