CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY 800th ANNIVERSARY EDITION. This well-researched history, first written by Noboru Koyama and published in 1999 in Tokyo, has been translated by Ian Ruxton. This fascinating case study is centred on the first Japanese graduate of Cambridge University, mathematician and academic Kikuchi Dairoku (1855-1917). Others who went on to distinguished careers include the scholar and statesman Suematsu Kencho (1855-1920) and the scholar-diplomat Inagaki Manjiro (1861-1908). This story, told for the first time in English, should interest all students of the Meiji era. The book includes nine black & white images, an introduction, a preface, seven appendices, an expanded bibliography and an improved index. "...[T]his is of interest to historians and Cambridge graduates alike." (Kansai Time Out, June 2006, p. 24)
