"In this new and compelling social and political history, Morris Low explores the self-fashioning of Japanese physicists, their engagement with Western science and their role in the modernization and post-war reconstruction of Japan. With authority and insight, Low guides us through the multi-layered institutional landscape of the physical sciences in twentieth century Japan in war and peace. His incisive analysis is a major contribution to the history of modern Japan, as well as to the history of twentieth century science."
