    Concise and well written history of modern Japan from end of Tokugawa Era to the 1980 s A good introductory book for those relatively new to Japan history Contains a good section on further reading.

    Purchased in Japan, edition dated 1990 A classic political economic history of the Meiji to current period Very very interesting a good overview of some of the key developments Doesn t really explain the post war miracle except in general terms however.
