Japan: Tradition and Change.
This textbook is designed to increase students' awareness of Japan. The study of Japan is worthwhile because Japan currently is and likely will continue to be one of the world's most important countries. U.S. knowledge of Japan is still quite limited compared to the level of understanding most Japanese exhibit about the United States. It is hoped that knowledge of Japan will leave the student better prepared to face an increasingly interdependent world. This book contains eight chapters: (1) Japan: An Introduction; (2) Geography of Japan; (3) Early History; (4) Modern History; (5) The Japanese Economy; (6) Japanese Institutions; (7) The Japanese People; and (8) Japan and the Future. At the end of each chapter is a list of activities and suggestions for further reading. Numerous black and white photographs appear throughout the book. (DB)
