Annotation

This is a concise, authoritative and vibrant introduction to Japanese history from earliest times to the present day. It is a history for our times, posing important questions regarding how we should situate a nation's history in an age of environmnetal and climatological uncertainities.

Full Description

A Concise History of Japan integrates the pageantry of Japanese history with today's environmental concerns, including climate change, rising sea levels, violent Pacific storms, and devastating tsunami. It explores the changing environmental conditions that have shaped Japanese history, and how Japan has in turn shaped our changing environment.
