This compelling social history uses diaries, memoirs, fiction, trial testimony, personal recollections, and eye witness 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._

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."
