A narrative history of Japan covering prehistoric times through to 1997. This history, provides a chronological narrative examining the political, cultural, philosophical and religious continuities in Japan's long, rich history in an exploration of why the Japanese are who they are today. It provides a timeline of events in Japanese history, a glossary of Japanese terms, biographical sketches of important figures, and a bibliographic essay of interest to students and general readers. The first three chapters examine the prehistoric and early feudal foundations of Japan's unique culture. Perez places special emphasis on the development and flowering of the religious and cultural aspects of Japanese society. The next three chapters focus on the foundation of Japanese political thought - the basis of Japan's late 19th-century modernization. Two chapters cover Japan's descent into the "Valley of Darkness": militarism, ultra-nationalism and World War II, followed by the American occuption and the "re-inventing" of Japanese culture. The final two chapters detail Japan's struggle from the 1970s through 1997 with a new global identity - that of the world's most productive industrial economy.
