Japan holds unique historical significance as the first non-Western nation to win recognition by the West as a modern 'civilised' society and a major imperial power. This dissertation examines the significance of this rise for ideas of human difference and world order in British intellectual life and beyond in the late nineteenth and first half of the twentieth centuries.
