Description du livre
About the Book
Books on the History of Japan often begin with a discussion of the Imperial eras that culminated in the Heian period (794-1185AD), which was followed by decline and fragmentation into shogunates, and reunification during the Edo period (1600–1868). The US Perry's Expedition in 1853–54 disrupted Japan's isolation. The subsequent Emperor Meiji period (1868-1912) transformed Japan into a major industrial and military power. However, increasing militarism resulted in catastrophic consequences due to Japan's invasions of Manchuria and China, and 1941 attack on the US. Titles include: Feudal and Modern Japan, Japan and Its Regeneration, The battle of Tsu-Shima, between the Japanese and Russian fleets, fought on 27th May 1905, The development of the anti-Japanese agitation in the United States, The Empire of Japan: Brief Sketch of the Geography, History and Constitution, The fall of Tsingtau; with a study of Japan's ambitions in China, and The white peril in the Far East; an interpretation of the significance of the Russo-Japanese War.
