    As far as textbooks go this is probably the best on Japanese history that I've ever read It's to the point informative even handed short only around 335 pages and written in an engaging style that rarely bores me This makes sense considering it was written by the great Edwin Reischauer of Harvard University Definitely recommended for those interested in Japanese history but not yet ready or willing to tackle books like The Making of Modern Japan another excellent history but mostly focused on Japan after 1600 The only downside is the book is a bit outdated it was published in 1989 A lot of things have changed since then and it would be interesting to see what Reischauer would say about post Showa Japan But as a survey of Japanese history from ancient times to the mid 20th century this book is still extremely usefulAnd no the book does not ignore the Rape of Nanking and other horrible things the Japanese did during WWII Nanking for one is referenced on page 256 Nanking was captured in December and the willingness of army commanders to see this former center of anti Japanese agitation punished led to days of wanton slaughter

    It's a good book almost The writing is good informative and succinct But the book entirely ignores the rape of nanking and overly paints Japan in too nice of a view I would say this is a dangerous book because of how generous it is but it's unforgivable that they ignored such an event
