Modern Japan : a historical survey by Mikiso Hane( Book )

From the Publisher: Integrating political events with cultural, economic, and intellectual movements, Modern Japan provides a balanced and authoritative survey of modern Japanese history. A summary of Japan's early history, emphasizing institutions and systems that influenced Japanese society, provides a well-rounded introduction to this essential volume, which focuses on the Tokugawa period to the present. The fourth edition now includes the latest scholarship on feudal women, samurai tactics, Chonin education, political reforms in the late Tokugawa period, foreigners in Nagasaki during the Meiji Restoration, and early feminism in the later Meiji period. Bringing Japanese history up to date, the final chapter details current issues, including the impact of the Gulf Wars on Japanese international relations and the recent controversies over Japanese war crimes, the so-called Comfort Women, and the Yasukuni war memorial

Premodern Japan : a historical survey by Mikiso Hane( Book )

33 editions published between 1986 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This newly revised volume drawn from Professor Hane's classic text, Japan: A Historical Survey, presents a rich account of early Japanese history for students. Important elements of early Japanese history persist in present-day Japan more tenaciously than is sometimes realized. Hane traces the key developments of Japanese history in the premodern period, including the establishment of the imperial dynasty, early influences from China and Korea, the rise of the samurai class and the establishment of feudalism, the culture and society of the long Tokugawa period, the rise of Confucianism and Shinto nationalism, and, finally, the end of Tokugawa rule. Although the book is structured around major political developments, Hane also carefully integrates the social, economic, cultural, and intellectual aspects of Japanese history. His revisions incorporate important recent scholarship on this formative period of Japan's history

Peasants, rebels, women, and outcastes : the underside of modern Japan by Mikiso Hane( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hane's social history uses diaries, memoirs, fiction, trial testimony, personal recollections, and eyewitness accounts to weave a tale of what ordinary Japanese endured throughout their country's era of booming economic growth. Through accounts of peasants, miners, textile workers, rebels, and prostitutes, the author shows us Japan’s “modern century” (from the beginnings of contact with the West to World War II) through fresh eyes. In doing so, Hane mounts a challenge to the success story of Japan’s “economic miracle.” Starting with the Meiji restoration of 1868, he illustrates how modernization actually widened the gulf, economically and socially, between rich and poor, between the mo-bo and mo-ga (“modern boy” and “modern girl”) of the cities and their rural counterparts. Hane interlaces his narrative with individual stories that allow us see Japan from the bottom up. This updated edition is enhanced by a new introduction by Samuel H. Yamashita. By allowing the underprivileged to speak for themselves, Hane and Yamashita present us with a people’s history of an often-hidden world. --Adapted from publisher description
Eastern phoenix : Japan since 1945 by Mikiso Hane( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2019 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It has been fifty years since Japan admitted defeat and accepted the terms of the Potsdam Declaration following World War II. At the time, Japan was in shambles, its imperial dream shattered, and its people reduced to scrounging for sufficient food to stay alive. Yet over the past half century, Japan has remade itself and emerged as one of the leading economic powers in the world. How did Japan achieve this success, and what has this remarkable rebirth meant for the Japanese people? In Eastern Phoenix, Mikiso Hane closely examines historical factors that have contributed to Japan's postwar development politically, economically, socially, and culturally. Beginning with the occupation by U.S. forces under Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Hane shows how American reforms and initiatives combined with the political actions of subsequent Japanese leaders to create a country able to forge ahead economically while retaining many traditional aspects of prewar Japanese society. In addition to presenting a narrative overview of important events since 1945, Eastern Phoenix provides insight into the evolution of Japan's foreign relations, internal effects of prosperity on Japanese society, and problems that remain despite extraordinary progress. The book critically examines such media-hot topics as education, environmental degradation, organized crime, racial and class discrimination, the Japanese work ethic, and the role of women in society. To provide useful context for student readers, Hane frequently punctuates his discussion by contrasting Japanese statistics with those of the United States. The book also excels in examining how artists and writers have grappled with Japan's rapidly evolving contemporary history, and Hane points the reader toward books and films that can shed additional light on Japanese perceptions of the past fifty years.--Publisher description
Our land was a forest : an Ainu memoir by Kayano Shigeru( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2018 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a beautiful and moving personal account of the Ainu, the native inhabitants of Hokkaido, Japan's northern island, whose land, economy, and culture have been absorbed and destroyed in recent centuries by advancing Japanese. Based on the author's own experiences and on stories passed down from generation to generation, the book chronicles the disappearing world and courageous rebirth of this little-understood people. Kayano describes with disarming simplicity and frankness the personal conflicts he faced as a result of the tensions between a traditional and a modern society and his lifelong efforts to fortify a living Ainu culture. A master storyteller, he paints a vivid picture of the Ainus' ecologically sensitive lifestyle, which revolved around bear hunting, fishing, farming, and woodcutting. Unlike the few existing ethnographies of the Ainu, this account is the first written by an insider intimately tied to his own culture yet familiar with the ways of outsiders. Speaking with a rare directness to the Ainu and universal human experience, this book will interest all readers concerned with the fate of indigenous peoples

Studies in the intellectual history of Tokugawa Japan by Masao Maruyama( Book )

23 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive study of changing political thought during the Tokugawa period, the book traces the philosophical roots of Japanese modernization. Professor Maruyama describes the role of Sorai Confucianism and Norinaga Shintoism in breaking the stagnant confines of Chu Hsi Confucianism, the underlying political philosophy of the Tokugawa feudal state. He shows how the new schools of thought created an intellectual climate in which the ideas and practices of modernization could thrive. Originally published in 1989.

Portraits of the Japanese workplace : labor movements, workers, and managers by Makoto Kumazawa( Book )

2 editions published between 1996 and 2019 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this groundbreaking volume, one of Japan's most insightful contemporary labor analysts assesses the "light and shadow" of Japanese-style management, explaining why Japanese employees have stood apart from workers in other industrialized countries. Kumazawa brings to life the intense combination of competition and community within Japanese workplaces. He highlights dilemmas facing Japanese labor on the shop floor and in the labor movement. His discussion ranges from the role of women to issues of quality control and self-management. Highly critical of the hierarchical and undemocratic nature of Japanese industry, he offers a sympathetic view from the inside of the difficulties of surviving in the workplaces of contemporary Japan."--Jacket
