This course is an introduction to the politics, culture, and ideologies of Modern Japan.  While still a 2000-level course covering the years 1800-2000s, we will focus on four major "moments" in modern Japanese history:  The Meiji Ishin 1850-90, The Crisis of Nation-State-Capital, 1920-45, and the formation of postwar capitalist society, 1955-89, and the collapse of the Bubble Economy and the "Lost Decade" 1995-.
