Reviews

“All of the chapters contribute to a dynamic picture of modern Japan as a maritime empire and part of a globalizing world. Some may be of greater interest to specialists in Japanese history than others, but all are informative and readily approachable for the general reader. As a whole, Transnational Japan as History provides an excellent snapshot of the most innovative research being done today in this exciting new field.” (Jordan Sand, The International Journal of Maritime History, Vol. 28 (4), 2016)
