BD. Edmund Blunden

57. [Blunden]. ‘Japanese Reflections’. Review of Mirror for Americans: Japan, by Helen Mears, and Via Tokyo, by Christmas Humphries. TLS, 25 December 1948, p. 723.

A favourable review of both works that turns attention to the history of Japan. Blunden argues that ‘no action in modern history can have been of much greater consequence than that of July 8, 1853’, when Perry ‘anchored his warships in the Bay of Yedo’.
