Dieses Buch basiert wie alle OGG-Bände auf der bewährten Dreiteilung - Darstellung, Grundprobleme und Tendenzen der Forschung, Quellen und Literatur. Im Darstellungsteil behandelt Gerhard Krebs die ausgehende Shogunatszeit mit der erzwungenen Landesöffnung, die Modernisierung der Meiji-Ära, den Aufstieg Japans zur Großmacht und den Übergang zur Demokratie nach dem verlorenen Zweiten Weltkrieg. Zäsuren und Brüche spielen dabei eine große Rolle, mindestens ebenso wichtig in der Geschichte des modernen Japans ist jedoch die Kontinuität von einer Ära zur vorhergehenden. Im Mittelpunkt des Forschungsteils steht die Wechselwirkung von Politik und Geschichtssicht bzw. Historiographie. Ein lange erwartetes, fundiertes Kompendium für Historiker und Japanologen, für Studenten, Dozenten und alle Japaninteressierten.

The best scholarship on the development of contemporary Japan This collection presents well over 100 scholarly articles on modern Japanese society, written by leading scholars in the field. These selections have been drawn from the most distinguished scholarly journals as well as from journals that are less well known among specialist; and the articles represent the best and most important scholarship on their particular topic. An understanding of the present through the lens of the past The field of modern Japan studies has grown steadily as Westerners have recognized the importance of Japan as a leading world economic force and an emerging regional power. The post-1945 economic success of the Japanese has, however, been achieved in the context o that nation's history, social structure, educational enterprise and political environment. It is impossible to understand the post-war economic miracle without an appreciation of these elements. The series is designed to give readers a basic understanding of modern Japan as we stand on the threshold of a new century, often referred to as the Pacific Century.

In many societies today, educational aims or goals are commonly characterized in terms of "equality," "equal opportunity," "equal access" or "equal rights," the underlying assumption being that "equality" in some form is an intelligible and sensible educational ideal. Yet, there are different views and lively debates about what sort of equality should be pursued; in particular, the issue of equality of educational opportunity has served as justification for much of the postwar restructuring of educational systems around the world. The author explores different interpretations of the concept of equality of educational opportunity in Japan, especially as applied to post-World War II educational policies. By focusing on the positions taken by key actors such as the major political parties, central administrative bodies, teachers' unions, and scholars, he describes how their concepts have developed over time and in what way they relate to the making of educational policy, especially in light of Japan's falling birthrate and aging society.

This incisive intellectual history of Japanese social science from the 1890s to the present day considers the various forms of modernity that the processes of "development" or "rationalization" have engendered and the role social scientists have played in their emergence. Andrew E. Barshay argues that Japan, together with Germany and pre-revolutionary Russia, represented forms of developmental alienation from the Atlantic Rim symptomatic of late-emerging empires. Neither members nor colonies of the Atlantic Rim, these were independent national societies whose cultural self-image was nevertheless marked by a sense of difference. Barshay presents a historical overview of major Japanese trends and treats two of the most powerful streams of Japanese social science, one associated with Marxism, the other with Modernism (kindaishugi), whose most representative figure is the late Maruyama Masao. Demonstrating that a sense of developmental alienation shaped the thinking of social scientists in both streams, the author argues that they provided Japanese social science with moments of shared self-understanding.
