A Companion to Japanese History

A Companion to Japanese History provides an authoritative overview of current debates and approaches within the study of Japan's history. Composed of 30 chapters written by an international group of scholars, it balances treatment of traditional themes with coverage of current trends and emerging perspectives.

The Companion presents a chronological survey of Japanese history from the country's earliest history up to the present day, giving readers insights into the key developments in each period of Japan's past. It also examines themes and alternative histories, with a particular emphasis on approaches and issues that will shape the future development of scholarship in Japanese history.

The Companion as a whole serves as an accessible, up-to-date, and stimulating reference tool for scholars, students, and general readers alike.
