Indeed, the latter may be left to the professional military, provided the desired control culture and value system are in place. 24 INTRODUCTION In 1782 the third Duke of Richmond, master general of the British Ordnance, wrote to Major-General Charles Grey about how to repel a possible French attack on Plymouth. He noted: I am sure you can have no idea of the many real difficulties that exist and prevent one’s doing business with that dispatch that could be wished. 5 Richmond therein captured the central feature of British military organization.

Neorealists attribute emulation to competition, strategic necessity, and external threats. The Ottomans faced numerous enemies and frequent defeat by superior Western militaries. The threat to Japan from the West was largely from the sea and, while hardly negligible, more remote. Neoinstitutionalists focus on how socialization and the desire for legitimacy motivate emulation. The Ottomans had no desire to emulate Western “infidel” ways, while the Japanese strongly desired to raise their status in an international society governed by Western norms and practices.
