| ||Japan Since 1945|
The book is part of the Association's Key Issues in Asian Studies series and examines the principal developments in Japanese politics, economics, society and foreign policy since 1945, as well as the question of why, despite all the changes that Japan has undergone since that time, it has not yet escaped the designation "postwar."
| ||Japan's Siberian Intervention, 1918-1922: 'A Great Disobedience Against the People'|
The fifty months of the Siberian Intervention encompass the existential crisis which affected Japanese at virtually all levels when confronted with the new "world situation" left in the wake of the First World War. This book attempts a broad examination of domestic politics, foreign policy, and military action by incorporating a wide array of voice through a detailed examination of public comment and discussion in journals and magazines, the major circulation daily newspapers of Tokyo and Osaka as well as those of smaller cities such as Nara, Mito, Oita, and Tsuruga.
