Very good copy overall.; Over the last century, North Sumatra has been the site of one of the more intensive and successful pursuits of foreign agricultural enterprise in the Third World and of overt, sometimes violent, confrontation between capital and labor. This fascinating ethnographic history by Ann Laura Stoler analyses how popular resistance actively molded both the form of this colonial expansion and the social, economic, and political experience of the Javanese labouring communities on Sumatra's plantation borders. Stoler considers the nature and intensity of labor protest at critical moments of the estate industry's development: from the early pioneering years to the… Read More

English text.; Hardcover (with dust jacket).; 16 x 24.5 cm 0.62 Kg.; 321 pages.; Used with minor signs of wear. As new. The dust jacket is now protected with a clearcover.; In 221 BCE the first Emperor of Qin unified the lands that would become the heart of a Chinese empire. Though forged by conquest, this vast domain depended for its political survival on a fundamental reshaping of Chinese culture. With this informative book, we are present at the creation of an ancient imperial order whose major features would endure for two millennia. Mark Edward Lewis highlights the key challenges faced by the court officials and scholars who set about governing an empire of such scale and diversity of peoples. He traces the drastic measures taken to transcend, without eliminating, these regional differences: the invention of the emperor as the divine embodiment of the state; the establishment… Read More

Interior as new.; "This survey of Japanese monetary history has been written by a specialist in financial economics who felt that an illustration of his thinking in Asian case studies would be valuable. The study is based on materials supplied to the author in Japan and on English secondary sources. The history gets under way in the Meiji period and takes the story up to 1975. At the conclusion of each historical chapter the author presents a national balance sheet. The analysis throughout is fairly technical which limits the value of the book in the classroom. But for economists interested in the financial background to Japanese economic growth, and to recent developments in Japanese public and private financial markets, this… Read More

Signs of wear on the dust jacket that is now protected with a clearcover; Harvard East Asian Monographs, 157.; The word samurai suggests the colorful figure of a lightly armored, mounted archer attended by two or three foot soldiers engaging in ritualized one-on-one combat, the aristocracy fighting man of the Kamakura Shogunate (1185-1333). Although some historians have considered the rise of the samurai as analogous to the rather abrupt rise of feudal knights in medieval Western Europe, Farris provides "evolutionary model" for Japan that traces the step-by-step adaptive development of local strongmen over more than half a millennium. Through analyses of military technology and tactics, social organization, economic base, and political skills, mainly… Read More

He has been personally involved in the activities about which he writes, and he knows many of the actors. Much of the book will be of special interest to mathematicians, economists, and bankers. The work also treats several topics of more general interest. Suzuki explains why Japan has built up such extremely high foreign trade surpluses, stating: "Postwar economic policy was constructed with investment/export-led growth as its strategic objective. The important elements in the policy were trade and foreign exchange management, protection of industry, and tax treatment favoring saving and… Read More

English text.; Hardcover (with dust jacket); 0.7 kg.; 16 x 23.5 cm.; 356 pages .; Used with minor signs of wear. The dust jacket is now protected with a clearcover.; While Spanish traders of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were mining the riches of the New World, the Portuguese continued to reap the lucrative Asian trade in spices and luxury items. Historians have long considered the Portuguese trade the exclusive enterprise of the kings of Portugal and a few privileged aristocrats, with only minimal participation by private merchants. But in fact, argues James C. Boyajian, actual capital investments by private Portuguese merchants were roughly ten times those of the Portuguese crown - and even exceed those of the far larger Dutch East India Company. In Portuguese Trade in Asia under the Habsburgs, Boyajian reassesses the consequences of Portugal's flourishing private trade with Asia,… Read More

Only Haru Reischaeuer could have written this extraordinary account of ther two illustrious grandfathers; one, a provincial samurai who became a founding father of the Meiji government; the other, scion of a wealthy and enterprising peasant family who almost singlehandedly developed the silk trade with America. Their remarkable stories, and those of their notable descendants, form a saga of unbounded vision… Read More

The dust jacket is now protected with a clearcover.; Harvard East Asian Monographs 230.; Until 350 years ago, the Chinese considered Taiwan a "savage island" beyond the pale of Chinese civilization. When the Qing conquered the island in 1683, the court debated the value of colonizing this "ball of mud". Yet, two centuries later, in 1895, Chinese writers lamented the island's cession to Japan as a loss of sacred national territory. Taiwan's trajectory from "savage island" to China's "sovereign territory" is the subject of this book. The author argues that colonial travel writing, ethnographic illustrations, and maps were central to this transformation and that traveler's representations of Taiwan… Read More

Signs of wear on the dust jacket that is now protected with a clearcover.; Modern Japan offers us a view of a highly developed society with its own internal logic. Eiko Ikegami makes this logic accessible to us through a sweeping investigation into the roots of Japanese organizational structures. She accomplishes this by focusing on the diverse roles that the samurai have played in Japanese history. From their rise in ancient Japan, through their dominance as warrior lords in the medieval period, and their subsequent transformation to quasi-bureaucrats at the beginning of the Tokugawa era, the samurai held center stage in Japan until their abolishment after the opening up of Japan in the mid-nineteenth century. This book demonstrates how… Read More

The first book-length study of Siamese psychological life, it describes the members of an Asian peasant community whose dominant personality traits are aimed at the maintenance of their individuality, privacy, and sense of self-regard. In addition, it offers suggestions for handling many of the theoretical and technical problems crucial to cross-cultural personality research. Basing his research on two years of field work in the Central Plain community of Bang Chan, Mr.Phillips offers a systematic analysis and comparison of two kinds of data: observations of the… Read More

The dust jacket is now protected with a clearcover.; Japan's Role in the Second World War is an integral part of the history of the twentieth century. By contrast, few historians associate Japan with what is widely recognized as the principal departure point of the century, the First World War. In the first full-length study of Japan in the Great War, Dickinson highlights the profound impact of the 1914 to 1919 years on Japan. Although the Japanese escaped the physical destruction experienced by their European counterparts, evidence of the bankruptcy of the old order spawned political turmoil in Tokyo that would, as in Europe, ultimately invite another war. The disintegration of modern Japan's foremost national model, Imperial Germany, aggravated a tumultuous Japanese domestic debate over national identity that… Read More
