This course offers a broad historical survey of Japan and its society from the 1890s to the beginning
of Japan’s “lost decades” of deflation that began in the early 1990s. Students who complete this
course will gain a deeper understanding of the key social, political, economic, international, and
cultural changes that have transformed Japan during this time period. Topics include modernisation
and its social consequences; creation of key political, economic and education institutions; Japanese
imperialism; Taisho democracy and the emergence of a modern culture in the 1920s; wartime Japan
and the home front; the experiences of the postwar; the 1964 Olympics; and the growing domestic
dissent since the late 1960s and the 1970s.
