Condition: Very Good+/Very Good+, Not Price Clipped


New York, NY: W. W. Norton & Company, 1999. Book. Very Good+. Hardcover. Fifth Printing. Minor wear; otherwise a solid, clean copy with no marking or underlining; a very good reading copy; illustrated with black and white photographs and a black and white map..

Drawing on a vast range of sources, from manga comics to MacArthur's report to Congress, this monumental new work by America's foremost historian of modern Japan traces the impact of defeat and reconstruction on every aspect of Japan's national life. Alongside the familiar story of economic resurgence, Dower examines how the nation as a whole reacted to the contradictory experiences of humiliation at the hands of a foreign power and liberation from the demands of a suicidal nationalism. The result is a titanic history, and a landmark book.
