The History and Culture of Modern Japan  

This course will analyze Japan's modern transition from a small isolated nation into a modern industrial superpower. The course begins with a brief study of the main tenets of traditional Japanese society before and during the Tokugawa Shogunate. Classes will consider why and how Japan transformed itself so radically during the Meiji period; the road to Pearl Harbor; the Allied Occupation; Japan's postwar economic miracle; and Japan in a new century.
