Modern Japan: A Very Short Introduction

Christopher Goto-Jones

Very Short Introductions

  • Looks at many contemporary concerns and issues in Japan - exploring its history, economy, politics, and culture
  • Examines what it means to call Japan a 'modern' society, and what 'modern' has meant to the Japanese
  • Debunks many myths, for example explaining how Japan was never completely isolated from the outside world: even during the long period of so-called sakoku (isolationism, 1601-1853)
  • Examines the continuity between pre-Pacific War Japan, and post-war Japan
