About the Author:

W. G. Beasley is at University of London, Honorary Member of the Japan Academy, Fellow of the British Academy.

Review:


"A masterful, synthetic study....In its broadly comparative approach, its use of Japanese language sources, and its exceptionally lucid organization and presentation, this book is extraordinarily valuable. Professor, graduate student and undergraduate can all read it with great profit."--The Historian


"A careful, judicious, and well-organized synthesis relying on the author's own archival research as well as a thorough canvass of the relevant secondary literature....There is no other book in English that provides what this one does, a compact and readable account of the history of Japanese imperialism. It will remain the standard single-volume work on the subject for some time to come, and it will undoubtedly be the book that those outside the field turn to for reference."--Journal of Japanese Studies


"A very useful study of the development of Japanese imperialism...Belongs in every college and university library."--CHOICE

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1991. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a study of the origins and nature of Japanese imperialism from the Sino-Japanese war of 1894-1895 through to 1945. Japan is the only Asian country in modern times to have built both a successful industrial economy and an empire, and it is Professor Beasley s contention that these two phenomena are closely related. Japan s aims were influenced by its experience of western imperialism and its own growing industrialization, but as external circumstances changed and Japan s capacity grew, so did its needs and ambitions. The creation of the Japanese empire is one of the most remarkable exploits of the twentieth century. Professor Beasley has provided a much-needed scholarly investigation into its development, expansion, and eventual destruction. Seller Inventory # AOP9780198221685
