Japan's Orient: Rendering Pasts into History (Paperback)Stefan Tanaka (author)

Stefan Tanaka examines how late nineteenth and early twentieth century Japanese historians created the equivalent of an 'Orient' for their new nation state. He argues that the Japanese attempted to use a variety of pasts - Chinese, Indian, and proto-historic Japanese - to construct an identity that was both modern and Asian.
