'Superbly designed and printed, the front cover a veritable work of art, illustrated throughout, while standards of academic publishing steadily decline, what a pleasure to see a book as well produced as this. The book's content fully matches expectations. To complete such a comprehensive, lucid survey of Modern Japan's stormy and tortuous political history from 1868 to the present day is an impressive achievement.' -Jnl Royal Asiatic SocietyAbout the Author:
