Meiji Japanrepresents a reassessment of the political, economic and social history of Japan during the Meiji period (1868-1911). The Meiji Restoration of 1868 was a pivotal event in Japanese history. Often seen as marking the break between 'pre-modern' and 'modern' Japan, the Restoration has dominated perceptions of Japan's history. This major new collection includes both earlier work written along more traditional lines and later challenges to accepted arguments. Together with a major new introduction by Peter Kornicki and bibliography, the articles presented provide a complex, nuanced and up-to-date reading of Japanese history.
Topics covered include:
* the collapse of the Bakufu and the Meiji Restoration
* economic change
* the politics and ideology of change
* social and cultural changes
* industrialization and consequences
* political and institutional change
* the economy.
Meiji Japananalyses the impact of the West, and of sometimes complacent Western notions of 'modernity', on this critical period in Japanese history. The set provides a comprehensive introduction to the history and historiography of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Japan.
