Editorial Reviews


'I highly recommend this accessibly-written and reasonably-priced book to anyone with an interest in Japanese society, past and present. It is most suitable for those with the most basic knowledge of modern Japanese history, as it opens doors to numerous interesting aspects of the history that may not be covered in 'classic' textbooks. In particular, I hope this book will cultivate more interest in the 'hidden' history of Japan's minorities, and contested interpretations of history during various eras.' - Kumiko Kawashima, Intersections, Issues 20, April 2009

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Tipton does an excellent job of writing a compact and yet informative text on Modern Japan. Especially helpful are the many references to scholarship which go into greater detail on specific topics. Not content to bury researchers in the endnotes, Tipton allows the reader easy access to much of the historiography as well as the history. Routledge, as usual, overprices the book, but the quality is outstanding and worth the cost.
