9780521178723: A Concise History of Japan (Cambridge Concise Histories)

A Concise History of Japan integrates the pageantry of Japanese history with today's environmental concerns, including climate change, rising sea levels, violent Pacific storms, and devastating tsunami. It explores the changing environmental conditions that have shaped Japanese history, and how Japan has in turn shaped our changing environment.

Críticas:

'This is the best short survey of Japanese history available today: timely in its focus on environmental issues but timeless in its sound scholarship, rich in detail but thoroughly readable and eloquent in its interpretation of Japan's complex past.' William M. Tsutsui, Hendrix College, Washington 'This is a textbook for our times from one of the leading scholars in the field. From humanity's deep history in the archipelago to the massive crisis of March 2011, Walker's history recasts the central themes of the Japanese past. Samurai scientists, wartime zealots, and the nation's vibrant post-war popular culture are placed in global context and enlivened through clear prose. Each chapter is concise, accessible and rooted in the latest scholarship. I can think of no finer text that covers the full range of Japan's past.' Ian Jared Miller, Harvard University, Massachusetts 'In crisp, clear prose, Brett Walker's Concise History provides a sweeping view of Japan's past distinctively framed by world history and, most crucially, by environmental challenges.' Julia Adeney Thomas, University of Notre Dame, Indiana 'Brett Walker's Concise History of Japan is a new national survey geared to the global Anthropocene. Alert to the many forces that threaten our planet's future, the author - a leading environmental historian in his own right - takes a critical look at the long sweep of the Japanese past. The result is a fast-paced account of the archipelago's development and its discontents, at once brisk and brooding.' Karen Wigen, Stanford University, California

Reseña del editor:

To this day, Japan's modern ascendancy challenges many assumptions about world history, particularly theories regarding the rise of the west and why the modern world looks the way it does. In this engaging new history, Brett L. Walker tackles key themes regarding Japan's relationships with its minorities, state and economic development, and the uses of science and medicine. The book begins by tracing the country's early history through archaeological remains, before proceeding to explore life in the imperial court, the rise of the samurai, civil conflict, encounters with Europe, and the advent of modernity and empire. Integrating the pageantry of a unique nation's history with today's environmental concerns, Walker's vibrant and accessible new narrative then follows Japan's ascension from the ashes of World War II into the thriving nation of today. It is a history for our times, posing important questions regarding how we should situate a nation's history in an age of environmental and climatological uncertainties.
