Embracing Defeat: Japan in the Wake of World War II

by Dower, John W

Condition: Near Fine/Fine


New York: Norton/ The New Press, 1999. 5th ptg . Hardcover. Near Fine/Fine. Timothy Hsu dj. 1410 shelf. Thick volume. Gold-stamped blue spine w/ white bds. No names, clean text. Unblemished dust jacket. "Pulitzer Prize" sticker front panel. With b/w photos, index.


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.
