In this concise but ambitious historiographical essay, Wilson argues for an approach to the Meiji Restoration that emphasizes multiple lines of motive and action.

"By bringing some very interesting critical theory to his reading, Wilson has produced a book that will shift the terms of discussion on this event."—Harry D. Harootunian

Addresses the question of who took part in making the Meiji Restoration. By arguing that there are many answers, that many groups of agents participated, Wilson offers a novel perspective on the decade of the 1860s in Japan, one that identifies and develops multiple lines of thought and action.
