An overview of Japanese history from prehistory to about the 1950s. This is quite an old book so not for understanding current events or current Japanese politics. However, this book will give you a good understanding of the basic fabric of Japanese society, politics and psyche which helps give insight into the Japan of today. A particularly fascinating read and overview on the Tokugawa period and Japan's nation building.
