Review:

"Peasants, Rebels, Women, and Outcastes is an indispensable source for anyone wishing to know--or teach--about Japan's traumatic emergence as a modern nation. Professor Hane's sympathy for the great number of individuals who were ground beneath the wheels of 'progress' is apparent on every page, and his ability to give vibrant and compelling voice to those usually dismissed as voiceless is extraordinary."

Book Description ROWMAN LITTLEFIELD, United States, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. This compelling social history uses diaries, memoirs, fiction, trial testimony, personal recollections, and eyewitness accounts to weave a fascinating tale of what ordinary Japanese endured throughout their century s era of economic growth. Rescuing vivid, often wrenching accounts of peasants, miners, textile workers, rebels, and prostitutes, Mikiso Hane forces us to see Japan s modern century (from the beginnings of contact with the West to the outset of World War II) through fresh eyes. In doing so, he mounts a formidable challenge to the success story of Japan s economic miracle. Starting with the Meiji restoration of 1868, Professor Hane vividly illustrates how modernization actually widened the gulf, economically and socially, between rich and poor, between the mo-bo and mo-ga ( modern boy and modern girl ) of the cities and their rural counterparts. He laces his scholarly narrative with sharply etched individual stories that allow us see Japan from the bottom up. We feel the back-breaking labor of a typical farm family; the anguish of poverty-stricken parents forced to send their daughters to Japan s new mills, factories, and brothels; the hopelessness in rural areas scourged by famine; the proud defiance of women battling against patriarchy; and the desperation of being on strike in a company town, in revolt in the countryside, or conscripted into the army. This second edition is enhanced by an updated epilogue and a new chapter on women activists, focusing especially on the articles, essays, and letters of Ito Noe, whose work was cut short when she was murdered by military police. By allowing the underprivileged to speak for themselves, Hane presents us with a unique people s history of an often-hidden world that will be invaluable reading for all those interested in the underside of Meiji Japan.
