First study of the fascinating parallelism that characterizes developments in Japan and Germany by one of Germany's leading Japan specialists.

With the founding of their respective national states, the Meiji Empire in 1869 and the German Reich in 1871, Japan and Germany entered world politics. Since then both countries have developed in strikingly similar ways, and it is not surprising that these two became close allies during the Second World War, although in the end this proved a "fatal attraction."

Bernd Martin is Professor of History at the University of Freiburg.
