Japan Enters the World SceneThe West was stupefied when faraway Japan attacked and beat the fleet of the Tsar. This program traces the opening of Japan after 250 years of isolation; the modernist attitudes of the Meiji Emperor; Japan's declaration of war on China in 1894; the Treaty of Shimonosaki, which granted Japan huge reparations, the island of Formosa, Port Arthur in Manchuria, and a kind of protectorate in Korea; and the resulting alliance between Russia and China, which set the stage for the confrontation between Russia and Japan. The program sets the stage in St. Petersburg and on the seas, as the tempests that would batter the 20th century were set in motion.
