    Japan has fascinated foreign visitors and observers for centuries.

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 62.00

    In this book social scientists scrutinize the middle decades of the nineteenth century in Japan.

In 1945 Nambara became president of Tokyo University and was an eloquent and ardent spokesman for academic... more...

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2004; US$ 43.99

    In this fresh and original analysis, Brian J.

Stripping away Orientalist-inspired misconceptions, the author stresses the... more...

    Hollywood hat die Geschichte für sich entdeckt. Nach einer Ära der Sandalen- und Piratenfilme in den 60er und 70er Jahren, welche zum Teil ungewollt komisch wirken, präsentiert die Traumfabrik seit dem Erfolg von Ridley Scotts Gladiator im Jahr 2000 in regelmäßigen Abständen Filme, welche historische Stoffe verarbeiten.

    Japanese foreign policy in international political affairs, particularly after the Second World War, was criticized as relying solely on bilateralism and dismissed as blindly emulating American foreign policy.
