A Modern History of Japan: From Tokugawa Times to the Present, Fourth Edition, paints a richly nuanced and strikingly original portrait of the last two centuries of Japanese history. It takes students from the days of the shogunate--the feudal overlordship of the Tokugawa family--through the modernizing revolution launched by midlevel samurai in the late nineteenth century; the adoption of Western hairstyles, clothing, and military organization; and the nation's first experiments with mass democracy after World War I. Author Andrew Gordon offers the finest synthesis to date of Japan's passage through militarism, World War II, the American occupation, and the subsequent economic rollercoaster.

Review:


"This is THE textbook on modern Japanese history: it covers all the important events and developments in Japan's modern history. The book is well written and clearly organized, making the complexities of Japan's modern history accessible to students and general readers."--Max Ward, Middlebury College


"Beautifully written and argued by one of the eminent minds and stylists in the field. Gordon convincingly situates Japan on the stage of international history as a nation whose past must be understood to comprehend the history of the modern world."--Noell Wilson, University of Mississippi


"A Modern History of Japan is the best all-around textbook for modern Japanese history on the market."--Michael H. Chiang, Regis University
