This is a first ever comprehensive study on the history of assassinations, political murders and terrorist acts that impeded Tokyo's campaign to portray Japan's international image as a "civilized" nation, fit to join the comity of Western advanced nations. This work investigates the "impact" of political murders on the imperial court, members of the military elite, the cabinet, elder statesman, imperial advisors, State guests from neighbouring countries and others which reinforced the views of some foreign leaders that Japan was a "bandit" nation headed for war. This topic, once taboo in public discourse, reveals the profound influence of these acts upon both domestic polity and international relations.
