About this book

An in-depth and comprehensive account of the complex history of Japanese modernism from the mid-19th century 'opening to the West' until the 21st century globalized world of 'postmodernism.' Its concept of modernism encompasses not just the aesthetic avant-garde but a wide spectrum of social, political and cultural phenomena.

Reviews

'With this, Starrs has picked up where he left off from his previous trilogy on Japanese literature, providing readers with another informative and challenging study. In so doing, he provides us with fresh insights into a topic that has been restored to a leading place in a variety of debates in recent years: Japan's approach to the modernist agenda when reassessed against the backdrop of postmodernist discourse. Once more, we are indebted to Starrs for his clear and concise analysis and attention to detail.' - Mark Williams, Chair, School of Modern Languages and Cultures, University of Leeds, UK
