Synopsis: The story of modern Japan, from first 'opening' to the West with Admiral Perry's Black Ships in 1853, through World War II, to Japan's emergence as a Western-style democracy and economic power at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.

About the Author: Ian Buruma was born in the Netherlands to a Dutch father and English mother in 1951. Though educated in both Holland and Japan, Ian Buruma spent a great portion of his life in Asia. He has written such books as "God's Dust: A Modern Asian Journey", "Behind the Mask" and "The Wages of Guilt: Memories of War in Germany and Japan." His novel, "Playing the Game," is a fictional biography about the life of an Indian prince who played cricket in Britain.
