Chōshū in the Meiji restoration by Albert M Craig( Book )

31 editions published between 1961 and 2000 in English and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a study of the Meiji Restoration that changed the face of Japan. Prominent historian Albert M. Craig tells its story through that of the state of Choshu - whose role in the formation of modern Japan was not unlike that of Prussia in Germany - during the fifteen crucial years between 1853 and 1868." "Previous studies of this transition have stressed the role of discontented lower samurai, frustrated rich merchants, and peasants, claiming that they provided the motivating force behind the political movements of the Restoration period, but this work sharply challenges these earlier interpretations. Craig instead emphasizes the vitality of traditional values in Japan's early reaction to the West and foregrounds the critical contribution of the old society to the formation of the new Meiji state. Choshu in the Meiji Restoration is a seminal work for scholars and students of Japanese history."--Jacket

Civilization and enlightenment : the early thought of Fukuzawa Yukichi by Albert M Craig( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Albert Craig's engaging history offers an illuminating look at a key figure and the world of ideas in nineteenth-century Japan. Fukuzawa Yukichi introduced the schema of the stages of civilization into Japan during the 1860s and 1870s. He replaced the traditional view of Japan as Confucian and civilized with a new view in which it was backward and only half-civilized, which produced calls for change and inspired the "civilization and enlightenment movement" of the 1870s. Moreover, even while acknowledging the "civilization" of the West, Fukuzawa was keenly aware that the West was imperialistic and a dire threat to less developed nations. Because of this danger, he felt that Japan's future could not be left to incremental changes; only a great exertion of national will would suffice to preserve the nation. Government action was necessary to promote reforms in every area of life. The people, too, had to promote learning and attain a personal independence that would undergird Japan's national independence." "Moving back and forth between the ideas of Western thinkers and Fukuzawa's reinterpretations in terms of Japan's needs and cultural assumptions, Albert Craig provides a new analysis of the founding of modern Japan."--BOOK JACKET
