8 editions published between 1965 and 2015 in English and held by 866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dealing with the extraordinary economic modernization that has been taking place in Japan since 1868, this is a study of Japan's historical opportunities and the human responses that have molded the vigor of her development. The first half of the book concentrates on the Meiji Era, 1868-1911, when the foundations of modern industrial society and the modem state were being created. The second half focuses on Japan since World War II. The sixteen authors who have contributed to this volume represent much of the best informed scholarship on the economic factors of Japanese modernization. Originally published in 1965.

Tradition and modernization in Japanese culture by Donald H Shively( Book )

3 editions published between 1971 and 1976 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essays on the Iwakura Embassy, the realistic painter Takahashi Yuichi, the educational system, and music, show how the Japanese went about borrowing from the West in the first decades after the Restoration: the formulation of strategies for modernizing and the adaptation of Western models to Meiji culture. In the second half of the volume, the darker side, the pathology of modernization, is seen. The adjustment of the individual and the effects of progressive modernization on culture in an increasingly complex, twentieth-century society are recurring themes. They are illustrated with particular intensity in the experience of such writers as Natsume Soseki and Kobayashi Hideo, in the thought of Nishida Kitaro, and in the millenarian aspects of the new religions.Originally published in 1976.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
