The Cambridge history of Japan by Peter Duus( Book )

25 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and held by 1,331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the major transformations in world history during the twentieth century has been the slow shift of world economic and political power from the Atlantic to the Pacific Rim. Japan has played a key role in spurring this transformation. Once an isolated island society, little known to its neighbours and practically unknown to the West, Japan has emerged today as a leading economic power. The country's rise to a position of international prominence has not been a smooth process, however - it has come only after a period of turmoil and conflict. The Cambridge History of Japan is the first major collaborative synthesis to present the current state of knowledge of Japanese history for the English-reading world. Volume 6 provides a general introduction to Japan's history during the first three quarters of the twentieth century, with emphasis on political, economic, social and intellectual trends
Twelve doors to Japan by John Whitney Hall( Book )

17 editions published between 1961 and 1965 in English and held by 1,230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The twelve doors of this college-level text are twelve chapters on aspects of japan and japanese culture as treated by various academic disciplines. The authors' purpose in choosing this format was to present introductory information about japan and to acquaint students with the aims, materials, and methods of disciplines other than the one they are trained for by their undergraduate work. Introductory chapters treat fairly concrete, visible subject matter or involve disciplines with a familiar scheme of coordinates (geography, anthropology, history, and linguistics). The text proceeds with chapters on more abstract aspects of traditional japanese culture (literature, art, philosophy). Culture and the individual is considered through personality psychology and educational systems. Final chapters include disciplines treating contemporary japan (political science, law and economics). The chapters on japanese linguistics and literature were written by joseph K. yamagiwa and the chapter on law in japan by B. james george, jr. Select bibliographies are appended to encourage student use of outside reading materials. This text is published by mcgraw-hill book company, new york, and costs $9.95. (jd)

Tanuma Okitsugu, 1719-1788, forerunner of modern Japan by John Whitney Hall( Book )

The author has used Japanese sources almost exclusively in this study of Tanuma, who rose from being a page to become a feudal lord of wealth and influence. His state policies were based on practical and progressive reasoning. His liberal policies might have brought an end to a long period of national seclusion and hastened Japan on the path toward modernization. However he failed, and instead went down in disgrace

34 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the fourth of six volumes designed to explore the history of Japan from prehistoric to modern times. Volume 4 covers the years from 1550 to 1800, a short but surprisingly eventful period in Japanese history commonly referred to as Japan's Early Modern Age. At the start, in the sixteenth century, much of the country was being pulled apart by local military lords engaged in a struggle for land and local hegemony. These daimyo succeeded in dividing Japan into nearly autonomous regional domains. Before the end of the seventeenth century, however, the daimyo in turn were subjected to a powerful unification movement led by three colourful figures, Nobunaga, Hideyoshi, and Ieyasu. It was under Tokugawa Ieyasu, the last of the unifiers, that Japan was brought together under a single powerful command vested in the office of shogun. The Tokugawa hegemony lasted until 1868 when it was brought down by the Meiji Restoration. This volume attempts to flesh out the historical tale with insights into the way that people lived and worked. It examines the relationship between peasant and local lord, and between the lord, as a unit of local government, and the emerging shogunate. It offers new

This third volume of the Cambridge History of Japan is devoted to the three and a half centuries spanning the final decades of the twelfth century when the Kamakura bakufu was founded to the mid-sixteenth century when civil wars raged following the demise of the Muromachi bakufu. Volume 3 contains 13 specially commissioned essays written by leading Japanese and American scholars that survey the historical events and developments in medieval Japan's polity, economy, society and culture, as well as its relations with its Asian neighbours. The essays reflect the most recent scholarly research on the history of this period. The volume creates a rich tapestry of the events that took place during these colourful centuries, when the warrior class ruled Japan, institutions underwent fundamental transformations, the economy grew steadily, and Japanese culture and society evolved with surprising vitality to leave legacies that still characterize and affect contemporary Japan. A meticulously prepared glossary of terms and a chronological table of major historical events and developments are included
