Schencking, J. C. (2005). Making waves: politics, propaganda, and the emergence of the Imperial Japanese Navy, 1868-1922. Stanford, Calif., Stanford University Press.

"This book explores the political emergence of the Imperial Japanese Navy between 1868 and 1922. It fundamentally challenges the popular notion that the navy was a 'silent,' apolitical service. Politics, particularly budgetary politics, became the primary domestic focus - if not the overriding preoccupation - of Japan's admirals in the prewar period. This study convincingly demonstrates that as the Japanese polity broadened after 1890, navy leaders expanded their political activities to secure appropriations commensurate with the creation of a world-class blue-water fleet."--BOOK JACKET.
