  • Treacherous Women of Imperial Japanby Helene Bowen Raddeker

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 195.00

    Kanno Suga and Kaneko Fumika were both found guilty on different occasions in 1911 and 1926 of conspiring to assassinate the Japanese emperor.

Through examination of their own life stories and writings, Helene... 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$ 11.65

    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...

  • The Last Samurai - Japanische Geschichtsdarstellung im populären Kinofilmby Daniel Scherrer

    Diplomica Verlag 2009; US$ 50.17

    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. So entstand mittlerweile für... 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 1950-1964 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...

    Wiley 2012; US$ 34.95

  • 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...

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 153.00

    Japan faces significant challenges in both traditional and non-traditional areas of national security policy as the economic resurgence of China and the loss of US hegemonic clout significantly transform the strategic landscape of the Asia-Pacific region. How is Japan coping with this new global and regional politico-security environment? What strategic... more...
