Shiga Shigetaka was an important Japanese intellectual of the Meiji era (1868-1912). He was the pioneering advocate of kokusui shugi, a theory which called for the preservation of Japan's cultural identity in the face of increasing pressure from the West in the late 1880s. He was a great traveller (covering 260,000 miles), was given the title of honorary correspondent by the Royal Geographical Society in 1917, and called the 'Japanese Ruskin' by Walter Weston. This book demonstrates that Shiga was an internationally-oriented, humanitarian enlightener, who devoted his life to ensuring the survival of Japan in the rapidly-changing world order. It presents a realistic picture of Shiga's beliefs and offers fresh insight into modern Japanese intellectual history.
