Japan : the intellectual foundations of modern Japanese politics by Tetsuo Najita( Book )

Historians have long been aware of the richness and complexity of the intellectual history of modern Japanese politics. Najita's study, however, is the first in a Western language to present a consistent and broad synthesis of this subject. Najita elucidates the political dynamics of the past two hundred years of Japanese history by focusing on the interplay of restorationism and bureaucratism within the context of Japan's modern revolution, the Meiji Restoration
Tokugawa political writings by Shigehiro Ogyū( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The modern political consciousness of Japan cannot be understood without reference to the history of the Tokugawa period, the era between 1600 and 1868 that preceded Japan's modern transformation. Tetsuo Najita introduces the ideas of the leading political thinker of the period, Ogyu Sorai (1666-1728), a pivotal figure in laying the conceptual foundations of Japan's modernization. His basic thoughts about history and the ethical purposes of politics are presented, revealing the richness of the philosophical legacy of eighteenth-century Japan, a legacy which cannot be seen through the perspective of 'westernization'. His ideas reveal a vision of human diversity and individual virtue which can be viewed in comparative perspective, as well as an insight into the history and politics of Japan. The texts are accompanied by a chronology of Sorai's life, a glossary, a guide to persons mentioned in the text, and a guide to further reading, as well as Professor Najita's introduction, which puts Sorai's work into philosophical and historical context
Ordinary economies in Japan : a historical perspective, 1750-1950 by Tetsuo Najita( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author explores a powerful theme in the economic thought and practice of ordinary citizens in late Tokugawa and early modern Japan. He examines commoners' writings on the virtues of commerce, on the reconstruction of villages, and on groups offering credit and loans, particularly the traditional cooperative, the kō, which citizens created to save on another in times of famine and fiscal emergency without having to turn to their government. The author's discussion centers on the relationship among economics, ethics, and the epistemological premise that nature must serve as the first principle of all knowledge, and he illuminates comparative issues of poverty, capitalism, and modernity

Japan in the world by Masao Miyoshi( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the end of World War II, Japan has determinately remained outside the current of world events and uninvolved in the processes determining global history and politics. In Japan and the World, distinguished scholars, novelists, and intellectuals articulate how Japan-despite unprecedented economic prowess in securing dominance in the world's market-is caught in a complex dependency with the United States. Drawing on critical and postmodernist theory, this timely volume situates this dependency in a broader historical context and assesses Japan's current dealings in international politics
