Description: Japan's transformation from an isolated society to a military empire and, after a crushing defeat in World War II, into one of the world's foremost economic powers, is one of the most fascinating stories of modern history. Although much has been written about modern Japan, no reference has analyzed its political, economic, social, and cultural history to render a holistic account of the sweeping changes Japan has undergone since 1850. Now, with "The Columbia Guide To Modern Japanese History," Gary D. Allinson presents this much-needed learning resource for students of Japanese society and for lay readers seeking to better understand the economic powerhouse of East Asia during the 150 years that have catapulted it to international preeminence.

"The Columbia Guide To Modern Japanese History" is a unique work where readers will find:
-- A balanced narrative treating each facet of Japanese history -- political, social, economic, and cultural -- across four periods covering the years from 1850 to the present.
-- An encyclopedia-style topical compendium including more than 150 entries on such key subjects as Japan's emperors, political leaders, business enterprises, social organizations, and leading writers
-- Excerpts from many important historical documents
-- A chronology and list of prime ministers, providing for easy reference to important historical dates, periods, and people
-- A resource guide to more than 200 significant works in print, film and electronic form

Readily accessible to all readers, Allinson's reference will be one that citizens, teachers, students, and academicians will pull from their shelves often as they seek information on scores of topics. "TheColumbia Guide To Modern Japanese History" will endure as a valuable reference and learning tool for many years to come.
