Editorial Reviews


This is a very good book... [Allinson's] historical narrative is excellent. It is spare in the trivia that hinder general readers, and rich in analysis and interpretation.

(Louis G. Perez Journal of Asian History)

In the Columbia Guide, Gary Allinson has given us an innovative and reliable narrative and usable reference tools for Japan's modern history. It has practical value as an introduction to the study of Japan and as a reference volume for Japanologists.

(Thomas W. Burkman The Journal of Asian Studies)
