The main emphasis of this book is upon political, social and economic developments, as conditioned by Japan's interaction with the outside world, the advance of industrialisation and the emergence of the Japanese nation state.

Unlike previous textbooks on the history of modern Japan, Janet Hunter's book adopts a thematic approach which makes the period much more accessible for readers who wish to pursue their particular interests throughout the period. Moreover, it will also establish a greater awareness of the cultural and institutional continuities which are crucial to any proper understanding of modern Japan.

Review:

'The organization and brisk style should extend the appeal of the book beyond historians to a wide range of students in social science courses.'

The Times Educational Supplement

From the Back Cover:

An understanding of her recent history is crucial to any effective working relationship with contemporary Japan. This striking new Introduction will therefore be of interest and relevance to a much wider readership than the students of history for whom it is primarily designed. In it, Janet Hunter focuses on the years of 1853, when the outer world broke through Japan's long-standing self-imposed isolation, to 1952, when the postwar settlement and economic recovery set her family on the road to her present status as an economic superpower.
