Meiji Revisited: The Sites of Victorian Japan
Dallas Finn (au)
During the Meiji period (1868-1912) the Japanese laid the foundations for what is now the most advanced nation in Asia. The architecture & feats of engineering described & illustrated in this book stand as monuments to the dynamism & ambitions of the age, & to Japanís transformation from an isolated feudal society into a modern & remarkably cosmopolitan nation-state. Factories & schools, palaces & prisons, private homes, churches, hospitals, railways, bridges, canals, shipyards, parks, & museums are presented with careful attention to both the nuances of their design & construction & to their broader significance in reflecting & shaping the lives & consciousness of the people who built & used them. 200+ color & b&w illus.
