A History of Japan, 1582-1941: Internal and External Worlds / Edition 1by L. M. Cullen
Pub. Date: 04/28/2011
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Offering a distinctive overview of the pressures responsible for the emergence of modern Japan, Louis Cullen rejects the traditional boundaries of Japanese historiography and combines economic, social, and political approaches to create a powerful analysis. Cullen reviews the Japanese experience of expansion, social transition, industrial growth, economic crisis and war, to present an island nation that is a growing industrial power with little perception of its worldwide context.
