Japan’s military victory over China in 1894 was a profound shock to China’s ruling class, mainly because it had long regarded the Japanese as backward and inferior. Among Chinese people, defeat at the hands of the “eastern barbarians” stoked anger and fear but also admiration for Japan’s modernising progress.

The four decades that followed saw unprecedented China–Japan cooperation and exchanges, official and unofficial. They also saw the growth of Japan’s expansionist ambitions and the development in China of a virulent anti-Japanese nationalism that climaxed in the Sino–Japanese war of 1937–45, a war that was catastrophic for both sides.

This course traces the themes of conflict and cooperation in the China–Japan relationship from the late 19th century to the present.
