A Modern History of Japan: From Tokugawa Times to the Presentの感想・レビュー・書評
Without sound judgments, its narrative could be shattered. Indeed, this modern history of Japan is disastrous. To make matters worse, dare I say it, this book is a kind of propaganda which deteriorates the moral integrity of ordinary Japanese people, moreover, dashes our historical sense of duty. We have a Japanese translation but I don’t get the point why we have to appreciate or cherish it.
It is apparent that Andrew Gordon took advantage of, what is called, “the Allies nations (or the United Nations) history” which we must not follow. Read between the lines and you will find the book has a deliberate distortion of the facts. To put it simply, Gordon cannot grasp the civilization of Japan.
