Schirokauer, David Lurie (both: Columbia U.) and Suzanne Gay (Oberlin College) introduce students to the standard notions of Japanese economic and political history, social structure, thought, and art—leaving controversies and innovations to students who choose to pursue the matter further. They begin with the prehistory of the Japanese archipelago, and move through early modern and late traditional Japan to Japan and the modern world into the new century.
