Abstract : This study explains how Japan used the Anglo-Japanese Alliance to seek recognition among the world powers as an equal and territorial gains to satiate rapid gains in population and industrialization. Often referred to as the cornerstone of Japanese diplomacy during its life span (1902-1923), the Anglo-Japanese Alliance provided Japan with an opportunity to achieve her national goals. This study discusses how the Alliance influenced Japan's decision to make war with Russia in 1904, annex Korea in 1910, pursue territorial gains during World War I, and eventually gain dominance in the Far East by the early 1920's.
