Meiji ruling elite awareness of the need for the country joining the global process of industrialization while maintaining strict, we would say today, a traditionalism often even xenophobic and racist overtones, which gave uniqueness is the key experiment that allows us to understand a development which has astonished his contemporaries. and beyond. Samurai from Japan, from Japan Tokugawa era that seemed bewildered on a project capable of progress, the military power that has amazed the world with stunning victory in battle or conquest Tushima Strait to Port Arthur Russian citadels, to chase German interests in Asia at the end of World War meant not only for historical time step.
