Synopsis

Japanese Political History Since the Meiji Restoration, 1868-2000 by Richard Sims

Modern Japanese political history has been eventful, as Japan transformed from a decentralized feudal regime into a nation state which seemed to be following a Western pattern of modernisation until the 1930s. This volume explores the changes in the political process behind these developments.

Reviews

'Superbly designed and printed, the front cover a veritable work of art, illustrated throughout, while standards of academic publishing steadily decline, what a pleasure to see a book as well produced as this. The book's content fully matches expectations. To complete such a comprehensive, lucid survey of Modern Japan's stormy and tortuous political history from 1868 to the present day is an impressive achievement.' -Jnl Royal Asiatic Society'
