Summary

''This is a major historical work that, in the field of Japanese imperialism, will set a standard for careful and comprehensive analysis.The Abacus and the Swordis the handiwork of a master historian.''--Mark R. Peattie, author ofNan'yo: The Rise and Fall of the Japanese in Micronesia, 1885-1945 ''This book . . . deserves a wide readership, especially among East Asia history specialists, for it represents difficult and complex scholarship at its best. . . . It is clear from an analysis of his documentation that he put solid study into the Japan-Korea relationship problem, one of the most complex in modern East Asian history--the equivalent perhaps of the English-Irish relationship in Western History. . . . This book is . . . well worth reading, not only for East Asian specialists but for anyone fascinated by the mysteries of history.'' Hilary Conroy, American Academy of Political Science
