Описание: This examination of Japanese imperialism focuses on the domestic impact of Japan`s activities in Northeast China between 1931 and 1945, to consider the "metropolitan effects" of empire building - how the Japanese people imagined and experienced the empire they called Manchukuo.
An examination of the transformation of the Japanese diet from subsistence to abundance and an assessment of the consequences for health, longevity, and the environment.
In a little more than a century, the Japanese diet has undergone a dramatic transformation. In 1900, a plant-based, near-subsistence diet was prevalent, with virtually no consumption of animal protein. By the beginning of the twenty-first century, Japan's consumption of meat, fish, and dairy had increased markedly (although it remained below that of high-income Western countries). This dietary transition was a key aspect of the modernization that made Japan the world's second largest economic power by the end of the twentieth century, and it has helped Japan achieve an enviable demographic primacy, with the world's highest life expectancy and a population that is generally healthier (and thinner) than that of other modern affluent countries. In this book, Vaclav Smil and Kazuhiko Kobayashi examine Japan's gradual but profound dietary change and investigate its consequences for health, longevity, and the environment.
Smil and Kobayashi point out that the gains in the quality of Japan's diet have exacted a price in terms of land use changes, water requirements, and marine resource depletion; and because Japan imports so much of its food, this price is paid globally as well as domestically. The book's systematic analysis of these diverse consequences offers the most detailed account of Japan's dietary transition available in English.

Описание: Historical surveys of postwar Japan are usually established on the grounds that the era is already over, interpreting "postwar" to be the years directly proceeding World War II. However, the contributors to this book take a unique approach to the concept of the postwar period and treat it as a network of historical time periods from the contemporary period, connecting these time capsules to the war to which they are inextricably linked. The book also takes a very interdisciplinary approach to examining post-war Japan and includes chapters centred around subjects as diverse as politics, poetry, philosophy, economics and art which serve to fill the blanks in the collective cultural memory that historical narratives leave behind. As such Japan's Post-War will appeal to students and scholars of Japanese Studies and Modern Japanese History as well as historians studying the world after 1945.
Описание: Henry Hallam (1777–1859) was a journalist, historian of the English constitution and literary scholar. First published in 1827, this two-volume book documents the history of the laws and institutions of England from 1485 to 1760.
Описание: Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800–59) was one of the foremost historians of the Whig tradition. This hugely influential five-volume work, published between 1848 and 1861 to great popular acclaim (although it was not without its critics), traces the development of constitutional monarchy between 1685 and 1702.
