This is the first analysis of the main stages of development in Russian and Japanese civilization with a slant on the similarities and differences of historical processes in Russia and Japan and the influence of national identity on them. This thorough examination – the first of its kind among Russian and Japanese scholars – aims to shed light on the differences in Russian and Japanese identity, and determine the extent to which these differences act as a barrier to the rapprochement of both nations.

At the same time, the authors aim to find something universal that could be used to improve relations and trust between both countries to build friendly Russo-Japanese relations.

The book is aimed at a wide circle of readers interested in history and modern-day issues. The book will be of particular interest to international relations and global development specialists, historians, political analysts, sociologists and students of specialized universities.
