9780521821551: A History of Japan, 1582-1941: Internal and External Worlds

Offering a distinctive overview of the pressures responsible for the emergence of modern Japan, Louis Cullen rejects the traditional boundaries of Japanese historiography and combines economic, social, and political approaches to create a powerful analysis. Cullen reviews the Japanese experience of expansion, social transition, industrial growth, economic crisis and war, to present an island nation that is a growing industrial power with little perception of its worldwide context.

Book Description:

This book offers a distinctive and penetrating overview of the internal and external pr essures responsible for the emergence of modern Japan. Louis Cullen takes an unusually broad approach that combines economic, social, and political approaches and rejects the traditional boundaries of Japanese historiography. He offers powerful new analysis of the Japanese experience of expansion, social transition, industrial growth, economic crisis and war. The Japan that emerges is a growing industrial power but one with little perception of the importance and nature of the external world.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This 2003 book offers a distinctive overview of the internal and external pressures responsible for the making of modern Japan. L. M. Cullen argues that Japanese policies and fears have often been caricatured in western accounts which have viewed the expansion of the west in an unduly positive light. He shows that Japan before 1854, far from being in progressive economic and social decay or political crisis, was on balance a successful society led by rational policymakers. He also shows how when an external threat emerged after 1793 the country became on balance more open rather than more oppressive and that Japan displayed remarkable success in negotiation with the western powers in 1853-68. In the twentieth century, however, with the 1889 constitution failing to control the armed forces and western and American interests encroaching in Asia and the Pacific, Japan abandoned realism and met her nemesis in China and the Pacific.
