Excerpt from Asia at the Door: A Study of the Japanese Question in Continental United States, Hawaii and Canada
No other nation stands so close to the Japan of today as America. One reason for this is the fundamental cosmopolitanism of both. Fundamental because racial elements are fundamental and both the American and the Japanese are racial mixtures.' In Japan three great human stocks are blended, the Malayan, the Mongolian, and the Aryan. Our own blend is more discrete perhaps in that there are more blood strains represented, yet also more homogeneous because the Aryan stock so largely predominates. Thus on either side of the Pacific we have the two most composite peoples facing each other. Because most composite, therefore most largely human and as a consequence more vitally related.
Another reason for the natural intimacy of these two great peoples exists in their love of peace. Since the United States became an independent nation it has had three foreign wars, and all of them of minor nature, though of large importance in their outcome. These wars were forced upon us and were not of our choosing. We have been the great arbitrating world-power. Our situation, our traditions, and our line of development make for peace.
Japan's history also has been remarkably pacific.
