    With the Japanese posing as the leader of the world's 'coloured' peoples before the Second World War, many Ethiopians turned to Japan for inspiration and support against Italian encroachment on their country. Drawing on Japanese, Russian, Italian, French and English sources, this detailed examination of Ethiopian-Japanese relations from 1918 to the Italo-Ethiopian War of 1935-6 illuminates the pernicious and flexible use of race in international diplomacy of the period.
