  • Inventing Lebanonby Kais M. Firro

    I.B.Tauris 2002; US$ 32.00

    Inventing Lebanon examines the history behind an idea: a new polity of ?Greater Lebanon?. It shows how, under the powerful influence of the French Mandate, various groups of the local elite attempted to create what amounted to a new Lebanese nationalism, carving the state into Maronite Christian, Sunni and Shiite power bases. The results only accentuated... more...

  • Japan and the Wider Worldby Akira Iriye

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 57.95

    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... more...

  • Modern Japanby J. E. Thomas

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 62.95

    J E Thomas examines the historical roots of Japanese social structures and preoccupations and he sets these within the broad chronological framework of Japan's political and military development. The book can thus serve as an introduction to modern Japan in a more general sense - but its focus throughout is on the people themselves. Professor Thomas... more...

  • Japan 1868-1945by John Benson; Takao Matsumura

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 68.95

    The history of Imperial Japan, from the Meiji Restoration through to defeat and occupation at the end of the Second World War, is central to any understanding of the way in which modern Japan has developed and will continue to develop in the future. This wide-ranging accessible and up-to-date interpretation of Japanese history between 1868 and 1945... more...

  • Japanese Imperialism, 1894-1945by W. G. Beasley

    Clarendon Press 1987; US$ 64.99

    This is a study of the origins and nature of Japanese imperialism from the Sino-Japanese war of 1894-1895 through to 1945. Japan is the only Asian country in modern times to have built both a successful industrial economy and an empire, and it is Professor Beasley's contention that these two phenomena are closely related. Japan's aims were... more...

  • Japanby Christian Tagsold

    Ch. Links Verlag 2013; US$ 10.46

    Hauptbeschreibung Japan - kaum ein Land wirkt so exotisch und doch vertraut: Wir denken an ultraschnelle Züge, die vor majestätischer Fuji-Kulisse durch das Land rasen, an Tempel, Pagoden und modernste Technik. Oft wurde es als das völlig andere Land beschrieben, so fern von Europa und so fremd für Europäer; und dennoch ist Japan tief in unseren... more...

  • Snow on the Pineby Kyoko Hatakeyama; Craig F. Freedman

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 193.00

    "Snow on the Pine" presents a compelling view of the Japanese foreign policy that runs counter to the common wisdom reducing Japan's post-war efforts to the pursuit of purely commercial interests. This book takes a new approach - the eventual Japanese defeat in the Second World War did not transform Japan into an exceptional state seeking... more...

  • Japan and the Sino-Soviet Alliance, 1950-1964by Dr Christopher Braddick

    Palgrave Macmillan 2003; US$ 165.00

    Japan and the Sino-Soviet Alliance 1950-1964 reveals the divisive impact of the Sino-Soviet Alliance on Japanese domestic politics and foreign relations during the turbulent years between 1950 and 1964. Drawing on extensive Japanese sources and unprecedented access to previously classified government documents, C.W. Braddick exposes the myths shrouding... more...

  • Contemporary Japanby Jeff Kingston

  • An Imperial Concubine's Taleby G. G. Rowley

    Columbia University Press 2012; US$ 39.99

    Japan in the early seventeenth century was a wild place. Serial killers stalked the streets of Kyoto at night, while noblemen and women mingled freely at the imperial palace, drinking saké and watching kabuki dancing in the presence of the emperor?s principal consort. Among these noblewomen was an imperial concubine named Nakanoin Nakako, who in 1609... more...
