Booknews
This is volume 1 of a six-volume study of the history of contemporary Japan. Written by leading academicians, 20 essays discuss the broad historical context in which to study Japan's postwar experience, the dynamics of the surrender decision, the Occupation's significance, the traditional and revisionist view of the American democratization policy in the early postwar years, and other postwar issues. They also cover the unraveling of Japan's prominent economic power in the recent past, the failure of Japanese political reform, and the Japanese inability to conclude a closure on the ghosts of World War II. Edited by Beauchamp, University of Hawaii. Lacks an index. Distributed by Taylor & Francis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
