Editorial Reviews


"It seems that a new scholarship is emerging from English-writing scholars of Japanese modernization and industrialization. This book admirably covers different aspects of Japanese modernization, science and technology, gender, health care and traditional technology especially from the viewpoint of cultural and gender studies." —Shigeru Nakayama, Kanagawa University

"A pioneering study in English of how science, medicine, and technology helped to transform Japan in the turbulent years after the Meiji Restoration. Morris Low is to be praised for assembling this excellent collection." —James R. Bartholomew, The Ohio State University
"Low is to be commended for assembling a collection of such valueable essays by both leading senioe and junior scholars in Building a Modern Japan.  What this collection--together with some of Low's other recently published works--proves is that the history of science of Japan has indeed become a well-established and growning field outside Japan itself." —Walter Grunden, ISIS
