Chapter Summary

This section of the boom presents a list of author names, reference articles and books relevant to discussion on the hidden history of intellectual relations between nineteenth-century Japan and the Netherlands, utilizing a variety of primary source materials that have been preserved at Leiden University Library. Specifically, the book presents an analysis of the experience of Nishi Amane and Tsuda Mamichi in their studies in the Netherlands and, after their return home, of the roles they played in the modernization of Japan, with reference to their close relations and heated debates with other contemporary intellectuals, such as Fukuzawa Yukichi, Nakamura Masanao, Ōkuma Shigenobu, ItōHirobumi, and Nakae Chōmin.

Keywords: Japan; Leiden University Library; Netherlands; Nishi Amane; Tsuda Mamichi
