Overview

Japan's Postwar History is the only book that provides an integrated analysis of Japan's social, political, and economic history from 1932 until the present day. Gary D. Allinson has substantially updated his work for a second edition that takes Japan from the bursting of the economic bubble through the long recession of the 1990s and up to 2003.

Editorial Reviews

Choice
Allinson guides his readers through the political, social, and economic changes . . . that lead Japan to its present world position. . . .This . . . finely-crafted book should be read by any American who wants to make the effort to understand contemporary Japan.
Historian
Teachers have long awaited a first-rate history of postwar Japan. Gary Allinson has made the wait worthwhile. His book is a well-conceived, clearly written, and insightful survey of the period. . . . Its publication not only gives us a fine teaching tool, but also provides a useful summary of the progress in the field of postwar Japanese history.
Canadian Journal of History
Japan's Postwar History includes a chronology, list of postwar prime ministers, and suggested readings in the English language. It uses examples from literature in order to introduce students to the large body of translated works and to create, together with the use of vignettes, more vivid impressions of living conditions during a period. Moreover, it argues against certain popular stereotypes and stresses the need to appreciate the continuities between "postwar" and "prewar" Japan."
