Description - Understanding Modern Japan by Peter W. Preston

This work takes the reader from pre-modern times to the development of Japan within the Asia Pacific and the wider global political system, and finally to the current economic crisis in the region. It maps Japan's shift into the modern world within the wider dynamics of political-cultural and geo-economic change in the developing global system and traces Japan's development through its distinctive historical phases. The major issues in the study of modern Japan are explored, and the prospects for an increasingly integrated regional bloc in Pacific Asia are considered. The author also analyzes the links between contemporary Japan and Pacific Asia around trade, aid and investment, and he considers the implications for future political and policy analysis of Japan's rise to regional and global power.
