"In the decades between the two World Wars, Japan made a dramatic entry into the modern age, expanding its capital industries and urbanizing so quickly as to rival many long-standing Western industrial societies. How the Japanese made sense of the sudden transformation and the subsequent rise of mass culture is the focus of Harry Harootunian's fascinating inquiry into the problems of modernity. Here he examines the work of a generation of Japanese intellectuals who, like their European counterparts, saw modernity as a spectacle of ceaseless change that uprooted the dominant historical culture from its fixed values and substituted a culture based on fantasy and desire. Harootunian not only explains why the Japanese valued philosophical understandings of these events, often over sociological or empirical explanations, but also locates Japan's experience of modernity within a larger global process marked by both modernism and fascism." "Harootunian shows that Japanese and European intellectuals shared many of the same concerns and also stresses that neither Japan's involvement with fascism nor its late entry into the capitalist, industrial scene should cause historians to view its experience of modernity as an oddity. The author argues that strains of fascism ran throughout most every country in Europe and in many ways resulted from modernizing trends in general. This book, written by a leading scholar of modern Japan, amounts to a major interpretation of the nature of Japan's modernity."--Jacket

Japan in the world by Masao Miyoshi( Book )

15 editions published between 1991 and 1999 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the end of World War II, Japan has determinately remained outside the current of world events and uninvolved in the processes determining global history and politics. In Japan and the World, distinguished scholars, novelists, and intellectuals articulate how Japan-despite unprecedented economic prowess in securing dominance in the world's market-is caught in a complex dependency with the United States. Drawing on critical and postmodernist theory, this timely volume situates this dependency in a broader historical context and assesses Japan's current dealings in international politics
History's disquiet : modernity, cultural practice, and the question of everyday life by Harry D Harootunian( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In History's Disquiet, acclaimed historian Harry Harootunian calls attention to the boundaries that compartmentalize the world around us. In one of the first works to explore on equal footing the European and Japanese conceptions of modernity - as imagined in the writings of Georg Simmel and Walter Benjamin, as well as ethnologist Yanagita Kunio and Marxist philosopher Tosaka Jun - Harootunian seeks to expose the problematic nature of scholarly categories. In demystifying these rigid categories, he demonstrates how they can be escaped."--Jacket
Postmodernism and Japan by Masao Miyoshi( Book )

20 editions published between 1988 and 2003 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Postmodernism and Japan is a coherent yet diverse study of the dynamics of postmodernism, as described by Lyotard, Baudrillard, Deleuze, and Guatarri, from the often startling perspective of a society bent on transforming itself into the image of Western "enlightenment" wealth and power. This work provides a unique view of a society in transition and confronting, like its models in the West, the problems induced by the introduction of new forms of knowledge, modes of production, and social relationships

The empire's new clothes : paradigm lost, and regained by Harry D Harootunian( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Empire and imperialism have returned with a vengeance - not as a set of ideas and practices to be exhumed by the historians, but as paradigms for 21st-century living. Harry Harootunian turns his gaze to signs of the new imperialism in the world - from the United States' occupation of Iraq to supposed terrorist enclaves around the globe." "The arguments being made today for imperialism's historical and contemporary value echo earlier rationales for modernization theory and its conception of "development" during the heyday of the Cold War. Harootunian cuts through the layers to reveal that under the new clothes, it's the same empire."--Jacket
