A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. The Japanese emperors, a peculiar and unique phenomenon in modern times, are the subject of this important handbook edited by Ben-Ami Shillony. An international team of leading scholars looks at these emperors - Meiji (Mutsuhito), Taisho (Yoshihito), Showa (Hirohito), and the present emperor Akihito - both as personalities, and as a constantly developing institution. It becomes clear that both the personalities, and the periods in which they reign(ed) have shaped Japanese monarchy, and our image of it. The essays thoroughly deal with topics such as the ideology behind the institution, the roles of the emperors and their wives, their visual representation, their links to Christianity, the antagonism they called forth in right-wing circles, Hirohito s much-debated war responsibility, and the controversy over amending the succession rules.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The Japanese emperors, a peculiar and unique phenomenon in modern times, are the subject of this important handbook edited by Ben-Ami Shillony. An international team of leading scholars looks at these emperors - Meiji (Mutsuhito), Taish (Yoshihito), Shwa (Hirohito), and the present emperor Akihito - both as personalities, and as a constantly developing institution. It becomes clear that both the personalities, and the periods in which they reign(ed) have shaped Japanese monarchy, and our image of it. The essays thoroughly deal with topics such as the ideology behind the institution, the roles of the emperors and their wives, their visual representation, their links to Christianity, the antagonism they called forth in right-wing circles, Hirohito's much-debated war responsibility, and the controversy over amending the succession rules.

Critique:

"...this volume is a valuable and thought-provoking collection of essays (...) a valuable addition to the literature about the Japanese monarchical system which, despite its lack of real power, remains deeply rooted in Japanese traditions, even if it seems decreasingly relevant to the new generations of the twenty-fi rst century." Sir Hugh Cortazzi, Journal of Japanese Studies 37:1 (2011)
