Japan and the Wider World : From the Mid-nineteenth Century to the Present, Paperback Book

Japan and the Wider World : From the Mid-nineteenth Century to the Present Paperback

Description

Akira Iriye assesses Japan's international relations, from a Japanese perspective, in the century and a half since she ended her self-imposed isolation and resumed her place in the international community.

The book is the author's own adaptation of two highly successful short studies, up to and after 1945, that he wrote for Japan.

It ends with a consideration of Japan's international relations since the end of the Cold War, and her place in the world today.

This is history written from within - and there could be no better interpreter of Japan to the West than this most distinguished of historians, who, himself Japanese, has long lived and taught in the United States.
