Description: This thoroughly updated edition provides a concise and fascinating introduction to the social, cultural and political history of modern Japan. Ranging from the Tokugawa period to the present day, the book charts the country's evolution into a modernized, economic and political world power. Incorporating the latest research results, this revised edition has been restructured to take into account developments since the first edition. The book widens the traditional approach to Japanese history to include social as well as political factors in the country's growth. Elise Tipton examines the social groups and developments that have previously been neglected, such as gender issues, ethnic minorities, labour conditions, popular culture and daily life. Through this charting of a complex web of social and political interaction, this book represents a unique picture of the diversity of modern Japan and its people. Including many new images and graphs which enhance visualization of historicalchanges, and a timeline that charts important events, this is a highly accessible and comprehensive textbook that is an essential resource for students, scholars and teachers of Japanese studies, history and politics.
