The Modern History of Japan paints a richly nuanced and strikingly original portrait of the last two centuries of Japanese history. It takes students from the days of the shogunate - the feudal overlordship of the Tokugawa family - through the modernizing revolution launched by midlevelsamurai in the late nineteenth century; the adoption of Western hairstyles, clothing, and military organization; and the nation's first experiments with mass democracy after World War I. Gordon offers the finest synthesis to date of Japan's passage through militarism, World War II, the Americanoccupation, and the subsequent economic rollercoaster. But the true ingenuity and value of Gordon's approach lies in his close attention to the non-elite layers of society. Here students will see the influence of outside ideas, products, and culture on home life, labor unions, political parties,gender relations, and popular entertainment. Most importantly, it illuminates the interconnectedness of Japanese developments with world history, demonstrating how Japan's historical passage represents a variation of a process experienced by many nations, and shows how the Japanese narrative formsone part of the interwoven fabric of modern history. This new edition incorporates increased coverage of both Japan's role within East Asia (particular with China, Korea, and Manchuria), as well as cultural and intellectual history.… (mehr)

A thorough well written book on Japan from Tokugawa Shogunate until 1990s. I think I was surprised by the amount of change in Japan from 1860's - 1880's. Japan transformed from Feudal state into Modern nation.

This is an academic book. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in gaining an outline of Japan.
