Chapter Summary

During the fourteen years covered by the diary, Baron d'Anethan too was a prolific writer. He sent innumerable dispatches to his government, detailing diplomatic affairs and political developments both in Japan and with her neighbours, together with his observations, recommendations and predictions. The writing throughout the Diary is complemented by many photographs as well as reproductions of nine of Professor Josiah Conder's paintings of 'Floral Art in Japan'. Baroness d'Anethan's diary reveals a continuing interest in one of the more formalized relationships between the two communities - that of inter-marriage between Japanese and Westerners. Contemporary historical writing focused on the conflict mainly in political terms; late-twentieth century writers on Japanese history focus on polity and not on people, generally devoting only a few lines to this episode as part of the rise of the Japanese military.

Keywords: Baron d'Anethan; historical writing; Japanese history; late-twentieth century writers
