This new study challenges the conventional view that the key figures involved in the opening of Japan were the US Navy's Commodore Perry, and the diplomats Harris (US) and Alcock (UK). A close examination of new sources suggests otherwise and puts Von Siebold's agenda to `save' Japan from being overtaken by the colonial and commercial ambitions of the West's great maritime nations in a new light.
