Bernd Martin's collection contradicts this impression in several ways. First, he shows that the influence of Germany on Japan was quite extensive in the late nineteenth century. Second, he argues that, despite superficial similarities in each nation's twentieth-century "fascist" phase, the aggressive nationalism of Japan and the racialist expansion of National Socialist Germany developed quite differently. This book is a collection of essays published between 1977 and 1994. A monograph probably would have smoothed over some of the choppiness of the essays.

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.

CULTURE AND POWER IN GERMANY AND JAPAN: The Spirit of Renewal, by Nils-Johan Jorgensen. Global Oriental, 318 p. 2006, £50 (cloth). The author of this interesting and thought-provoking study was a Norwegian diplomat who served in both Germany and Japan. The author brings out the differences between the two countries in their attitudes toward World War II and the horrific acts that took place in the years leading up to 1945. This means, in the case of Germany, focusing on the nature of Nazism, the Holocaust, and German feelings of guilt and remorse. But he also draws attention to the horrors of the saturation bombings of German cities such as Hamburg, Berlin and Dresden, which left many Germans feeling that they had been made victims.
