Ideology played a momentous role in modern Japanese history. Not only did the elite of imperial Japan (1890-1945) work hard to influence the people to "yield as the grasses before the wind," but historians of modern Japan later identified these efforts as one of the underlying pathologies of World War II. Available for the first time in paperback, this study examines how this ideology evolved. Carol Gluck argues that the process of formulating and communicating new national values was less consistent than is usually supposed. By immersing the reader in the talk and thought of the late Meiji period, Professor Gluck recreates the diversity of ideological discourse experienced by Japanese of the time. The result is a new interpretation of the views of politics and the nation in imperial Japan.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[O]ne of the foremost works of American scholarship on Japan.---Sidney D. Brown, Monumenta Nipponka

"This is, in many ways, the best book on Meiji ideology we are
likely to have for some time. It is written in flawless, often luminous
prose, magnificently documented, and done with wonderful common
sense and sound historical judgment."--Marius B. Jansen, Princeton University
