Description

The second series of Critical Readings offers in ten volumes a selection of sixty-two English-language pamphlets, press and journal articles, many extremely rare. This selection of valuable primary media history resources - published between 1906 and 1948 - takes Japan's agenda from the aftermath of victory against Russia and a free hand in Manchuria through Japan's blitzkrieg on Asia to the ignominy and ruin of 1945, and beyond to the ousting of the Guomindang and the approaching unification of China under Mao. Co-published with Edition Synapse, Tokyo. NO SALES RIGHTS IN JAPAN
