Japan's Orient by Stefan Tanaka
Book DescriptionStefan Tanaka examines how late nineteenth and early twentieth century Japanese historians created the equivalent of an 'Orient' for their new nation state. He argues that the Japanese attempted to use a variety of pasts - Chinese, Indian, and proto-historic Japanese - to construct an identity that was both modern and Asian.

Concerns the transformation of time during Japan's Meiji period, specifically from around 1870 to 1900. This book explores how changing conceptions of time destabilized inherited knowledge and practices and facilitated the reconfiguration of the archipelago's heterogeneous communities into the liberal-capitalist nation-state, Japan.
