Description: Brunton's memoir of his life as an English engineer abroad contains incisive portraits of Japan the manufacturing giant in its infancy during the Meiji period. From 1868 to 1876 Brunton acted as lighthouse builder in Japan, playing a key role as technical innovator and teacher of the attitudes necessary to accomplish ambitious new tasks. Brunton's great contribution was training Japan's first modern mechanics and insisting on the necessity of scientific training in a country where technical labor was despised and skilled trades barely existed.
