JAPAN’S RELATIONS WITH CHINA: Facing a Rising Power, edited by Lam Peng Er. London: Routledge, 2006, 242 pp., £65 (cloth).

Sino-Japanese relations are of critical importance to the future development of the two countries as well as wider East Asia. At the present time these relations are characterized by a number of incongruities if not contradictions. Diplomacy is at a low point, while economic ties are closer and more intensive than ever. History continues to overshadow the present and is destined to impact the shaping of the future.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
