9780747022060: Imperialist Japan: The Yen to Dominate

A study of Japanese imperialism, in its historical context, focusing on underlying psychological factors: the sense of inferiority engendered by wholesale adoption of Chinese culture, the long period of isolation, the hierarchical nature of the society, and Japan's present economic strength.

From Library Journal:

In 1982 the Japanese Ministry of Education approved textbooks that revised unpleasant aspects of the nation's past. Incensed by this and other acts of Japanese nationalism, Montgomery has attempted to set the record straight in a study of the country's politics and international relations from the mid-19th century to Pearl Harbor. The depth of his work reflects noteworthy research. Nonspecialists may not appreciate the great detail; scholars will find little added to the wealth of literature on Japanese imperialism and will be put off by the sophomoric subtitle and chapter subheadings and yet another attempt to blame Hirohito for World War II.
