Postwar History Education in Japan and the Germanys: Guilty Lessons, Dierkes, Julian
6 Dierkes, Julian Postwar History Education in Japan and the Germanys: Guilty Lessons
Routledge 2010 0415553458 / 9780415553452 Hardcover Very Good 
How did East and West Germany and Japan reconstitute national identity afte r World War II? Did all three experience parallel reactions to national tra uma and reconstruction? History education shaped how these nations reconceived their national ident ities. Because the content of history education was controlled by different actors, history education materials framed national identity in very diffe rent ways. In Japan, where the curriculum was controlled by bureaucrats ben t on maintaining their purported neutrality, materials focused on the empir ical building blocks of history (who? where? what?) at the expense of discu ssions of historical responsibility. In East Germany, where party cadres co ntrolled the curriculum, students were taught that World War II was a capit alist aberration. In (West) Germany, where teachers controlled the curricul um, students were taught the lessons of shame and then regeneration after h istorians turned away from grand national narratives. This book shows that constructions of national identity are not easily malleable on the basis of moral and political concerns only, but that they are subject to institutional constraints and opportunities. In an age when post-conflict reconstruction and reconciliation has become a major focus of international policies, the analysis offers important implications for the parallel revision of portrayals of national history and the institutional reconstruction of policy-making regimes.

7 Drea, Edward J. Japan's Imperial Army: Its Rise and Fall, 1853-1945 (Modern War Studies Ser ies)
University Press of Kansas 2009 0700616632 / 9780700616633 Hardcover Near Fine/Near Fine 
In excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlig hting. The spine remains undamaged. Popular impressions of the imperial Japanese army still promote images of s uicidal banzai charges and fanatical leaders blindly devoted to their emper or. Edward Drea looks well past those stereotypes to unfold the more comple x story of how that army came to power and extended its influence at home a nd abroad to become one of the world's dominant fighting forces. This first comprehensive English-language history of the Japanese army traces its origins, evolution, and impact as an engine of the country's regional and global ambitions and as a catalyst for the militarization of the Japanese homeland from mid-nineteenth-century incursions through the end of World War II. Demonstrating his mastery of Japanese-language sources, Drea explains how the Japanese style of warfare, burnished by samurai legends, shaped the army, narrowed its options, influenced its decisions, and made it the institution that conquered most of Asia. He also tells how the army's intellectual foundations shifted as it reinvented itself to fulfill the changing imperatives of Japanese society-and how the army in turn decisively shaped the nation's political, social, cultural, and strategic course.

The adventures of the Englishman who opened the East. This book illuminates a Jacobean world whose horizons were rapidly expanding and a Japan that wa s still unknown to the rest of the world. In the winter of 1611, a letter w as received by the merchants of the East India Company. The fact that it ca me from Japan, a forbidden and unknown land, was a cause of wonder, but eve n more remarkable was that the writer was an Englishman by the name of Will iam Adams. Adams had sailed to the East in 1598, but most of his company ha d died by the time their ship was washed up unexpectedly in Japan. He fell in love with the barbaric splendour of the country and decided to settle. H e forged a close friendship with the ruthless Shogun leyasu, took a Japanes e wife and sired a new, mixed-blood family. However, his homesick letter to London inspired the merchants to plan an expedition to the Far East, wishi ng to trade with the Japanese through Adams' good offices.
