MetadataShow full item record
It is the purpose of this paper to show what happened to the racial equality clause, why it happened, and the significance of its final rejection. It will involve a study of Japanese-American relations prior to the Peace Conference. This study will be limited to the growth of anti-Japanese feelings in the United States which necessitated Wilson's rejection of the racial equality clause. A detailed description of the discussions of the amendment in the League Commission follows an outline of the events of the First World War that contributed to Japan's strength at the Conference. The summary points out some of the implications of the outcome of the Japanese demands at Paris.
