Japan and the League of Nations

This chapter argues that the end of Japan’s League membership did not mark the demise of internationalism in Japan. Rather than marking a sharp break with the past, the Manchurian affair gave expression to trends that had long-standing roots and had been building for some time. Among them were the gravitation toward regional understandings for peace and order and the preference to address differences with neighbors on a bilateral basis. Also, in the affair itself and its aftermath, Japan demonstrated its compulsion to seek accommodation with the powers and achieve respect as a world citizen. In the wake of 1933, Japanese adherents to internationalism pursued their cause with renewed energy.
