This book offers a distinctive overview of the internal and external pressures responsible for the making of modern Japan. L. M. Cullen argues that Japanese policies and fears have often been caricatured in western accounts which have viewed the expansion of the west in an unduly positive light. He shows that Japan before 1854, far from being in progressive economic and social decay or political crisis, was on balance a successful society led by rational policymakers. He also shows how when an external threat emerged after 1793 the country became on balance more open rather than more oppressive and that Japan displayed remarkable success in negotiation with the western powers in 1853–68. In the twentieth century, however, with the 1889 constitution failing to control the armed forces and western and American interests encroaching in Asia and the Pacific, Japan abandoned realism and met her nemesis in China and the Pacific. Contents 1. Introduction: Japan’s internal and external worlds, 1582–1941; 2. Japan and its Chinese and European worlds, 1582–1689; 3. The Japanese economy, 1688–1789; 4. An age of stability: Japan’s internal world in perspective, 1709–1783; 5. Prosperity amid crises, 1789–1853; 6. Sakoku under pressure: the gaiatsu of the 1850s and 1860s; 7. Fashioning a state and a foreign policy, 1868–1919; 8. From peace to war, 1919–41. Printed Pages: 376 with 8 maps.
