A classic of Japanese history, this book is still the preeminent work on the history of Japan.

Newly revised and updated, A History of Japan is a fascinating look at the nation of Japan throughout history. Starting in ancient Japan during its early pre-history period A History of Japan covers every important aspect of history and culture through feudal Japan to the post-cold War period and collapse of the Bubble Economy in the early 1990's. Recent findings shed additional light on the origins of Japanese civilization and the birth of Japanese culture. Classic illustrations and unique pictures are dispersed throughout the book.

Mason's look at Japan is great for anyone who wants to know the history of the country from the early period until today. I used it for a class and loved it.
