The first Anglo-Japanese Alliance (日英同盟, Nichi-Ei Dōmei?) was signed in London at what is now the Lansdowne Club, on January 30, 1902, by Lord Lansdowne (British foreign secretary) and Hayashi Tadasu (Japanese minister in London). A diplomatic milestone that saw an end to Britain's splendid isolation, the alliance was renewed and expanded in scope twice, in 1905 and 1911, before its demise in 1921. It was officially terminated in 1923.

Famous quotes containing the word alliance:
“Racism as a form of skin worship, and as a sickness and a pathological anxiety for America, is so great, until the poor whitesrather than fighting for jobs or educationfight to remain pink and fight to remain white. And therefore they cannot see an alliance with people that they feel to be inherently inferior.”
—Jesse Jackson (b. 1941)
