Pub. Date:
The second edition of this summary of Japanese history has been revised to include new chapters on the Heisei Era and the latest cultural developments that have occurred since the first edition was published in 1999. Perez (Asian history, Illinois State U.) organizes this material in chronological order, ranging from early and feudal eras through World War II and Japan's emergence as a world leader in technology and economics. The author writes in a clear and easy-to-understand style that makes this volume appropriate for both students and general readers. Appendices include a list of notable people during the history of Japan, the Sat-Cho Oligarchy and a list of Japanese premiers. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
