Japan in transition, from Tokugawa to Meiji by Marius B Jansen( Book )

20 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book social scientists scrutinize the middle decades of the nineteenth century in Japan. That scrutiny is important and overdue, for the period from the 1850s to the 1880s has usually been treated in terms of politics and foreign relations. Yet those decades were also of pivotal importance in Japan's institutional modernization. As the Japanese entered the world order, they experienced a massive introduction of Western-style organizations. Sweeping reforms, without the class violence or the Utopian appeal of revolution, created the foundation for a modern society. The Meiji Restoration introduced a political transformation, but these chapters address the more gradual social transition.Originally published in 1988.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.

The contributors to this volume range over 2,000 years of history as they show how Confucian values spread throughout the region in premodern times and how these values were transformed in an age of modernization.

In Part I Patricia Ebrey analyzes the Confucianization of China; JaHyun Kim Haboush, that of Korea; and Martin Collcutt, the much later diffusion of Confucianism in Japan. In Part II Rozman compares types of Confucianism in nineteenth-century China and Japan and their adaptability in the twentieth century, while Michael Robinson adds an overview of modern Korean perceptions of Confucianism.

Urban networks in Chʻing China and Tokugawa Japan by Gilbert Rozman( Book )

34 editions published between 1971 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ch'ing China and Tokugawa Japan were unusually urbanized premodern societies where about one half of the world's urban population lived as late as 1800. Gilbert Rozman has drawn on both sociology and history to develop original methods of illuminating the historical urbanization of China and Japan and to provide a way of relating urban patterns to other characteristics of social structure in premodern societies. The author also hopes to redirect the analysis of premodern societies into areas where China and Japan can be compared with each other and with other large scale societies.The author divides central places into seven levels and determines how many levels were present in each country century by century. Through this method he is able to demonstrate how Japan was rapidly narrowing China's lead in urbanization and show that Japan was relatively efficient in concentrating resources in high level cities. Explanations for differences in urban concentration are sought in: a general discussion of the social structure of each country; an analysis of marketing patterns; a detailed study of Chihli province and the Kant? region; an examination of regional variations; and a comparison of Peking and Edo, which were probably the world's largest cities throughout the eighteenth century.Originally published in 1974.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.

Japan's response to the Gorbachev era, 1985-1991 : a rising superpower views a declining one by Gilbert Rozman( Book )

19 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gorbachev's transformation of both Soviet socialism and the Cold War world atmosphere kindled a far-reaching debate in Japan. Would Japan at last free itself of its secondary postwar standing? Would a new Soviet system and world order soon be established? Gilbert Rozman argues in Japan's Response to the Gorbachev Era, 1985-1991 that Japanese perceptions of the Soviet Union are distinctive and are helpful for understanding what will become an influential worldview." "Focusing on diverse opinion leaders and the relationship between the Japanese media, policy-making, and public opinion, Rozman shows how long-standing negative images of Soviet socialism and militarism have been reconsidered since the mid-1980s. His analysis treats burning issues such as the Northern Territories dispute, the Soviet commitment to reform, and the Soviet-American relationship. It also sheds light on Japanese views of Soviet history, modernization, and national character. Such views reveal some of the building blocks for the emergent Japanese worldview."--Jacket
Urban networks in Russia, 1750-1800, and premodern periodization by Gilbert Rozman( Book )

16 editions published between 1976 and 2016 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book takes an entirely new approach to the evolution of cities and of societies in premodern periods. Refining the theory advanced in his earlier study of China and Japan, Gilbert Rozman examines the development of Russia over several centuries with emphasis on the period immediately preceding the Industrial Revolution. He makes possible comparison of urbanization in five countries (including England and France as well as Russia) and develops a systematic framework for analyzing cities of varying size.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.

Dismantling communism : common causes and regional variations by Gilbert Rozman( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the late 1980s communism had begun to crumble in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. Yet today, the fate of communism throughout the world is far from certain. As former communist nations continue to undergo dramatic change in the 1990s, it is becoming apparent that the road away from communism is not a smooth path from Marxism to capitalism but one that may lead to different and quite unexpected destinations. Dismantling Communism takes a close look at the long-term forces of change and reform in communist countries. Stepping back from the optimists' giddy proclamations of Cold War "victory" as well as from the pessimists' warning that communism could rise again, the book presents two comparative approaches to analyzing the transformation of communism. The first approach is regional, stressing the commonalities and differences that exist among communist nations and states in the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, China, and Asia. Other chapters use a topical approach to explore the causes and pattern of transformation. Dismantling Communism is a timely look at the dizzying events that are reshaping the modern world. Its authors, experts on communism from a variety of fields and disciplines, provide insightful analysis and reasoned judgments. Their aim is not to predict the outcome of the transformation of communism throughout the world, but to suggest the significance reform will have in remaking the world community of the twenty-first century

Northeast Asia's stunted regionalism : bilateral distrust in the shadow of Globalization by Gilbert Rozman( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book paints a comprehensive picture of the pursuit of regionalism across Northeast Asia in the fifteen years following the cold war. In each of six periods, it identifies the main dynamic of regionalism and the problems that slowed regionalism's advance. It examines the evolving strategies of four countries - China, Japan, South Korea, and Russia - emphasizing the importance of bilateral relations while keeping in mind the globalizing U.S. role. By focusing on debates in each country, most of which have been little covered in English, the book demonstrates how suspicious neighbors and clashing strategies have undermined aspirations for regionalism. While false starts keep giving way to fresh hopes, only by learning the lessons of this transitional era will regionalism be placed on a stable footing. These include embracing globalization more fully while using regionalism for balance, working together in integrating North Korea while recognizing South Korea's pivotal role, compromising to allow China and Japan to share leadership, and focusing on a long-term vision of Northeast Asia."--Jacket

East Asian national identities : common roots and Chinese exceptionalism by Gilbert Rozman( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This rigorous comparative study of national identity in Japan, South Korea, and China examines countries with long histories influenced by Confucian thought, surging nationalism, and far-reaching ambitions for regional importance. East Asian National Identities compares national identities in terms of six dimensions encompassing ideology; history; the salience of cultural, political, and economic factors; superiority as a model national community; displacement of the U.S. in Asia; and depth of national identity. Through this analysis, Gilbert Rozman draws the three countries together in an East Asian National Identity Syndrome. Other contributors review historical sources and critical themes of identity in all three countries. Contributors include professors of sociology, international relations, and political science in the United States, Japan, South Korea, and China

East Asian security : two views( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new framework for Northeast Asian security must cope with the legacy of six decades of frequent changes in the region's great power relations. In order to realize the goals of the Joint Agreement in the Six-Party Talks, multilateralism is becoming more important. U.S. leadership faces challenges from: the Sino-U.S. rivalry that is better managed because of cooperation over North Korea; the Russo-U.S. rivalry that has intensified, although there is potential to stabilize it in this region; Sino-Russian partnership, which has drawn closer in response to the nuclear crisis but could be tested by progress that would reveal conflicting national interests; North Korean belligerence, which is unlikely to end even if the nuclear crisis is brought under control; South Korean balancing, which would remain even under a conservative president; and Sino-Japanese rivalry, which is somewhat under control in 2007 but remains the main barrier to regionalism. A U.S. regional strategy is needed that addresses all of these challenges in the context of the Six-Party Talks
