Sino-Japanese Transculturation free pdf Sino-Japanese Transculturation examines the cultural dimensions of relations between East Asia's two great powers, China and Japan, in a period of change and turmoil, from the late nineteenth century to the end of the Second World War. This period saw Japanese invasion of China, the occupation of China's North-east (Manchuria) and Taiwan, and war between the two nations from 1937-1945- the scars of that war are still evident in relations between the two countries today.
