Book Description

Nationalism was one of the most important forces in 20th century Japan. It pervaded almost all aspects of Japanese life, but was a complex phenomenon, frequently changing, and often meaning different things to different people. This book brings together interesting, original new work, by a range of international leading scholars who consider Japanese nationalism in a wide variety of its aspects. Overall, the book provides many new insights and much new thinking on what continues to be a crucially important factor shaping current developments in Japan.

'The volume covers a variety of topics from gender and the uses of the female body in propaganda posters to economic nationalism and Japanese naval history, and concentrates on the period from the mid-nineteenth century to the end of the twentieth century.' - Nations and Nationalism
