Age of Hirohito: In Search of Modern Japan
Daikichi Irokawa (au); Mikiso Hane & John K. Uda (tr); Carol Gluck (fr). With the death of Emperor Hirohito in 1989, the so-called Showa era (1926-1989) in Japanese history came to an end. With access to documents & source material previously unavailable, the history of Showa could be written in its entirety for the first time. This landmark assessment of modern Japan looks back over the seven decades of momentous changes encompassed by Emperor Hirohito’s reign. Exploring these years from the atrocities of the Sino-Japanese war & WW2 to the stunning economic & political transformation in the postwar period, Irokawa offers his frank views on the changing lives of ordinary Japanese & the way in which those changes have shaped the emperor system.
