Very Good : A book that does not look new and has been read but is in excellent condition. Shipped to over one million happy customers. This thoroughly updated second edition of Modern Japanprovides a concise and fascinating introduction to the social, cultural and political history of modern Japan. Ranging from the Tokugawa period to the present day, the book charts the country's evolution into a modernized, economic and political world power. Dealing with a broad and stimulating range of topics in an engaging style that will appeal to university students and the general reader, this book weaves social and political developments and balances a micro with a macro approach, introducing details about everyday lives that shed light on the bigger picture of major historical changes.
Its systematic attention to gender issues, minorities and popular culture distinguishes this history and contributes to a sense of the complexity and diversity of modern Japanese society. Completely up-to-date and including many new images and a timeline that charts important events, this highly accessible and comprehensive textbook is an essential resource for students, scholars and teachers of Japanese history, politics culture and society.
Praise for the first edition: 'This is a history textbook with a "difference". Here modern Japan emerges in all it's complexity and heterogeneity. The text keeps pace with the interest of tertiary students today in its focus on a broad range of people, and topics including changing architecture, town planning.
Her narrative of what Japan's modern trajectory has meant for women and minorities whose experience has been too-long neglected is especially unforgettable. This is an excellent book. I recommend it wholeheartedly. The text keeps pace with the interest of tertiary students today in its focus on a braod range of people, and topics including changing architecture, town planning. Focusing on the years of rapid industrialization and imperialist expansion to , David R. Ambaras challenges widely held conceptions of a Japan that did not, until recently, experience delinquency and related youth problems.
He vividly reconstructs numerous individual life stories in the worlds of home, school, work, and the streets, and he relates the changes that took place during this time of social transformation to the broader processes of capitalist development, nation-state formation, and imperialism.
