This book is a study of ties between China and Japan and their Asian counterparts. It does not therefore directly treat bilateral relations between these powers, as they already constitute the subjcect of many other studies. A lengthy perspective has been taken into account in order to recall past legacies, some of which are still painfully contentious, and to record evolutions in attitudes and strategies vis-à-vis Asian countries.

This book is the Proceedings  of the International Symposium, “New Dynamics between China  and Japan. How to build the Future  from the Past?”, held at the Maison Franco-Japonaise (MFJ) in Tokyo on June 27–29, 2007, in cooperation with the MJF, IRASEC, Waseda University, Asia Center and the Réseau Asie (French Network of Asian Specialists). My thanks, therefore, go first to all organizers  of  the Symposium, starting  with Françoise Sabban, head of the MJF, who hosted the Symposium, Shirahisi Masaya, from the Institute of Asia Pacific Studies at Waseda University, Francois Godement, Paris Institute of Political Studies, Director of the Asia Centre, and Jean- François Sabouret, Director of the Réseau Asie (CNRS), for their invaluable assistance in coordinating the program. Finally, I thank Benoît de Tréglodé for the initiative of this Symposium  and for the financial support of the French Embassy in Tokyo.
