Studies of Modern Japan
Studies of Modern Japan is a multidisciplinary series that consists primarily of original studies on a broad spectrum of topics dealing with Japan since the mid-nineteenth century. Additionally, the series aims to bring back into print classic works that shed new light on contemporary Japan. The series speaks to cultural studies (literature, translations, film), history, and social sciences audiences. In all cases, we publish the best scholarship available, by both established and rising scholars in the field, in order to nuance our understandings of Japan and the Japanese.
