With remarkable clarity and breadth of coverage, Goto-Jones introduces the major topics and themes of the modern history of Japan, giving particularly thoughtful attention to the complex and tortured efforts of figures seeking to define and defend a properly Japanese modernity, and those striving to come to grips with the trauma and shadow of World War II. * Andrew Gordon, Harvard University *
Lively, lucid, and full of insight, this is an outstanding exploration of Japan's troubled modern past. * Stephen S. Large, Wolfson College, Cambridge University *
