Welcome to Oxford's companion web site for the second edition of A Modern History of Japan: From Tokugawa Times to the Present
This site is designed for instructors and students in courses on Japan, and for general readers. It offers links to a wide array of documentary sources either referenced in the book or directly relevant to particular sections, as well as a selection of study questions and, for instructors and students, suggested topics for writing papers on modern Japanese history. It also connects to some excellent websites offering further information on Japan's modern history.

The contents of this website were prepared by Craig Colbeck, PhD candidate in History and East Asian Languages at Harvard University, in consultation with Andrew Gordon. Where noted on specific pages, we have adapted the work of authors of portions of the website for the first edition A Modern History of Japan.
