Overview

In this newly revised edition of their classic work, Mason and Caiger trace the enthralling evolution of modern Japan from its early pre-history through the post-Cold War period to the collapse of the Bubble Economy in the early 1990s.

This contemporary classic, now updated and revised, continues to be an essential text in Japanese studies.
