This study analyzes Japan's "dual policy" towards Africa: an often surreptitious "White Africa" policy that is very supportive of South Africa - despite public pronouncements to the contrary - and a separate "Black Africa" policy. In particular, the author demonstrates how, since the 1950s, government, business interests and the ruling Liberal Democratic Party have co-operated in formulating and implementing these policies. It deals also with the "honorary white" status afforded Japanese in South Africa, Japanese racism and anti-racism, Japan's foreign policy and the banking, industrial and trading interests of Japanese multi-national corporations in Africa.


Japan's historical relationship with Africa; the basic framework of Japan's overall African diplomacy; the development of Japan's post-war African diplomacy, 1952-1991; actors in the external decision-making of Japan's African diplomacy; a case study of big business' involvement in the dual diplomacy with Africa; Japan's diplomacy and racism; Japan and Africa at the crossroads.
