Japan and the Shackles of the Past - encuadernado, tapa blanda

2014, ISBN: 9780199829965

ID: 9780199845989

Japan is one of the world's wealthiest and most technologically advanced nations, and its rapid ascent to global power status after 1853 remains one of the most remarkable stories in modern world history. Yet it has not been an easy path; military catastrophe, political atrophy, and economic dysfunction have made regular appearances from the feudal era to the present. A quarter-century ago, Tokyo's stock exchange was even bigger than New York's, and the Japanese industrial juggernaut was thought to be unsurpassable. Now, Japan is seen as a has-been with a sluggish economy, an aging population, dysfunctional politics, and a business landscape dominated by yesterday's champions. Though it is supposed to be America's strongest ally in the Asia-Pacific region, it has almost entirely disappeared from the American radar screen. In Japan and the Shackles of the Past, R. Taggart Murphy places the current troubles of Japan in a sweeping historical context, moving deftly from early feudal times to the Tokagawa era and finally to the modern age that began with the Meiji Restoration. Combining fascinating analyses of Japanese culture and society over the centuries with hard-headed accounts of Japan's numerous political regimes, Murphy not only reshapes our understanding of Japanese history, but of Japan's place in the contemporary world. He concedes that Japan has indeed been out of sight and out of mind in recent decades, but he contends that this is already changing. Political and economic developments in Japan today risk upheaval in the pivotal arena of Northeast Asia; Murphy argues that parallels with Europe on the eve of the First World War are not misplaced. America's half-completed effort to remake Japan in the late 1940s is unraveling, and the American foreign policy and defense establishment is directly culpable for what has happened. The one apparent exception to Japan's malaise is the vitality of its pop culture, but it's actually no exception at all; rather, i ...|Books|https://wordery.com/jackets/787e3828/japan-and-the-shackles-of-the-past-rtaggart-murphy-9780199845989.jpg|9780199845989|Japan and the Shackles of the Past : Hardback : Oxford University Press Inc : 9780199845989 : 19 Nov 2014 : A concise yet penetrating overview of Japan, from a historical, social, political, economic, and cultural perspective.|new|1|1|1|20.00|0|GBP|R.Taggart Murphy|Oxford University Press Inc|19 Nov 2014|Regional & national history 9780199832705|Fairness and Freedom|20.43|https://wordery.com/fairness-and-freedom-david-hackett-fischer-9780199832705|Explores why the political similarities between New Zealand and the United States--including democratic politics, mixed-enterprise economies, a deep concern for human rights and the rule of law and more--have taken on different forms.|Books|https://wordery.com/jackets/b9104cd2/fairness-and-freedom-david-hackett-fischer-9780199832705.jpg|9780199832705|Fairness and Freedom : Hardback : Oxford University Press Inc : 9780199832705 : 25 Jan 2012 : From one of America's preeminent historians comes a magisterial study of the development of open societies focusing on the United States and New Zealand|new|1|1|212|24.99|0|GBP|David Hackett Fischer|Oxford University Press Inc|25 Jan 2012|History of the Americas 9780199829965|Cleopatra|10.98|https://wordery.com/cleopatra-duane-w-roller-9780199829965|Few personalities from classical antiquity are more famous--yet more poorly understood--than Cleopatra VII, queen of Egypt.
