About This Item

New York: W W Norton / The New Press, 1999. 676pp, b/w ills, index. cloth-backed papered boards in dust-jacket. Old sticker remnant on front, otherwise near new. A study of Japanese politics, society and culture in the immediate aftermath of the Second World War.. Reprint. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo.

Synopsis

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.
