This course explores Japan’s dramatic, and repeated, transformations during the 19th and 20th centuries. It will examine a range of topics, including samurai culture and the nature of the Tokugawa shogunate; the domestic and foreign sources of the collapse of that order; the revolutionary nature of the Meiji Restoration; Japan’s emergence as an industrial power and imperialist state; pan-Asianism and Japan’s drive for pre-eminence in Asia; the Pacific War and its aftermath; Japan’s post-war reconstruction and economic miracle; the transformation of gender roles; Japan’s social movements, and the dilemmas that Japan has faced as a militarily-constrained economic powerhouse. Prerequisite: Sophomore standing or permission of the instructor. Spring. Dawley.
