Praise for the first edition:
'This is a history textbook with a "difference". Here modern Japan emerges in all it's complexity and heterogeneity. The text keeps pace with the interest of tertiary students today in its focus on a broad range of people, and topics including changing architecture, town planning. tastes, fashion, popular culture, entertainment, and more.' – Hélène Bowen Raddeker, Senior Lecturer, School of History, UNSW, Sydney, Australia
'Elise Tipton has produced a lively and compelling synthesis, full of human interest and interpretative insight, of modern Japanese social and political history down to recent times. Her narrative of what Japan's modern trajectory has meant for women and minorities whose experience has been too-long neglected is especially unforgettable. This is an excellent book. I recommend it wholeheartedly.' – Stephen S. Large, Formerly Reader in Modern Japanese History, University of Cambridge, UKL'autore:
Elise K. Tipton is Associate Professor in Japanese Studies at the University of Sydney, Australia.
