633 pages, cloth, dj, very good. From the dj: In The Undefeated, Robert Harvey traces the development of modern Japan from its founders in the late nineteenth century, through the militarist rampage that led to the Pacific War, to the largely failed attempts at reform during the American occupation and the country's emergence as a modern superpower. He shows the common threads running through these periods and, controversially, suggests that continuity rather than change has underpinned Japan's politics and society since 1867. Japan does not believe it was the aggressor - or even the loser - in the Pacific War, but that it was a victim overwhelmed only by the atom bomb; and this failure to come to terms with its past has immensely disturbing implications for the future. Robert Harvey has written a masterful and convincing book on the far-reaching impact of one nation on the rest of the world. N° de réf. du libraire 17578
Synopsis : For the best part of two millennia Japan was an aggressively reclusive country and it was not until 1869 that Japan opened its doors and the basis was laid for its status as a modern industrial power. This book traces the development of the world's strongest economy.
