In my study of the subject “American Public Opinion and the Japanese Question,” I have taken the period from 1904 to 1974 because it represents a period in the relations between the two nations which will probably be of lasting consequence to both. During this period many questions of international importance have arisen, and the reflection of American public opinion on these events is well worth studying.

In this study of American public opinion I have not attempted to build a case either for or against Japan in the many controversies which have arisen between the two nations. The changes and causes which have brought about these differences of opinion have been discussed only briefly without attempt at critical comment. I have tried so far as possible to confine this study to the intangible but important subject of public opinion.
