Embracing Defeat: Japan in the Wake of World War II

by John W. Dower

Condition: Good/Very good


W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. / The New Press, 1999. Hardcover. Good/Very good. Dustjacket has some wear along the edges. Cover has heavy wear in lower right front and lower left rear corners. Some wear along bottom edges. Pages have been bumped in lower right corner. Approximately eight pages have a very small crease in upper right corner. Stated fifth printing.

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.
