Japan’ s radical development following the Meiji Restoration in 1868, drew the attention of the world. Among other provinces in British India, it was in Bengal chiefly, that one witnessed a sustained interest in the material advancement of Japan, as well as the uniqueness of her culture. For example, it is well-known that Bengal-born Rabindranath Tagore, the winner of Nobel Prize in Literature, visited Japan quite a few times. The book is an attempt to explore how writers of Bengal, also travelogue writers, nationalists and cultural enthusiasts from this part of British India have tried to represent the politics and culture of Japan during that period.
The author, Pratyay Banerjee, is an English instructor. He was awarded a Ph.D degree from the Faculty of Arts, Jadavpur University.
