Pressestimmen

"William M. Tsutsui introduces A C:oml~anion to Japanese History as an ambitious snapshot of Japan studies since the breakdown of the authority of modernization theory in the last half of the twentieth century." (Journal of World History, June 2010) “The well-written contributions, which blend together skillfully to form a unified whole, reflect the authors' authoritative knowledge of Japan … As a one-volume tour-de-force of Japanese history, this book stands out." (American Reference Books Annual) A Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2007 “Tsutsui has edited an invaluable and authoritative overview of current scholarship on the history of Japan. The 30 chapters, written by an international group of scholars, provide balanced treatment of traditional themes with coverage of recent trends, debates, and emerging perspectives … Essential. All levels/libraries." (Choice) "A vital reference tool for a large reference or academic library, providing a much needed fresh approach to the subject areas covered." (Reference Reviews)
