Japan's catapult to world economic power has inspired many studies
by social scientists, but few have looked at the 45 years of
postwar Japan through the lens of history. The contributors to this
book seek to offer such a view. As they examine three related
themes of postwar history, the authors describe an ongoing
historical process marked by unexpected changes, such as Japan's
extraordinary economic growth, and unanticipated continuities, such
as the endurance of conservative rule. A provocative set of
interpretative essays by eminent scholars, this book will appeal to
anyone interested in the history of twentieth-century Japan and the
dilemmas facing Japan today.
