4.0 out of 5 stars Good General History of Japan, 14 Oct. 2014
This review is from: A Modern History of Japan: From Tokugawa Times to the Present (Paperback)
Good general history of Japan read in preparation for a two week holiday in Japan. One of Gordon's themes is that Japan in not unique and experienced many of the same challenges as western countries in the 19th and 20th century. This is a good approach in some ways but does mean that some of the more interesting aspects of Japan's culture are not discussed at length. For instance Gordon does not shed much light on the equality of Japanese society, the use of advanced technology and the growth of Tokyo, the largest city in the world. All of these things are special if not unique to Japan and needed more attention.

This review is from: A Modern History of Japan: From Tokugawa Times to the Present (Paperback)
Love this book. helped me during my japanese history module.
The book does tend to ramblle on at times but once you go in knowing what you're looking for it's quite good.
