Reviews

"... these essays, individually and collectively, are a major contribution to the fields of Japanese studies and Japanese history. The 51 pages of works cited alone are an important contribution; they represent a basic bibliography of 20th-century Japanese history."--Choice

"Every chapter in this outstanding volume sets a high standard to challenge present and future historians who, armed with fresh methodologies, may seek to provide their own complete record of Japan's modern history."--Journal of Interdisciplinary History
