9780312233730: The Rise of Modern Japan, 3rd Edition: Political, Economic, and Social Change since 1850

This clear and authoritative book surveys the history of Japan from the mid 19th century up to the present day. It charts the spectacular rise of Japan, a society which leapt in little more than a generation from the feudal to early industrial forms of organisation - an exceptionally disturbing experience for the Japanese as they left behind the traditional and Asian and moved towards the modern and Western. It examines the turbulent 1930s and an empire won and lost between 1937 and 1945, and investigates the major changes after 1945 including the astonishing economic growth that has been achieved since the 1950s. This revised editon covers the economic recession and the dramatic political upheavals of the 1990s, taking the history of Japan up to the end of the 20th century.

About the Author:

W.G. Beasley is Emeritus professor of the History of the Far East at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. He is also a Fellow of the British Academy and an honorary member of the Japan Academy.

From Library Journal:

Beasley, Emeritus Professor of the History of the Far East at the University of London, first published The Modern History of Japan in 1963. The book went through several revisions and has been considered a standard work on its subject. When the author undertook yet another revision of the book in 1987, he discovered that he had altered his original volume to the extent that the new work, reviewed here, deserved a new title. Like its predecessor, this is a survey of modern Japanese history from its origins in the Tokugawa period to the present, bringing the story up through the death of Hirohito and the Recruit-Cosmos scandal in Japanese politics in the early part of 1989. While there is nothing astoundingly new in interpretation here, the book utilizes the most recent scholarship in the field and is good, solid history. Highly recommended for readers looking for a concise, well-written history of modern Japan. --Scott Wright, Coll. of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minn.
