Beschreibung des Verlags

Without Japan, you probably wouldn't have your car...but how much do you really know about this fascinating country's rich and colorful history?

For a country that’s brought us household names as diverse as Nintendo, Toyota, and Sony, shockingly little is known about Japan’s rich and complex history.

Like many westerners, you may have a love of Japanese culture and cuisine.

Perhaps you wait longingly for the latest tech developments to flood out of the country...but how much do you really know about how Japan got to be where it is today?

In The History of Japan in a Nutshell, you’ll be guided through the most important timelines in Japan’s history - from 35,000 BC right through to the present day. You’ll discover:



The complete story of the emergence of one of the world’s most resilient nations
A deeper understanding of the Samurai and their place within the class structure
The wars that shaped Japan
How Buddhism arrived in Japan (and how it spread after a shaky start)
A closer look at feudal Japan
The most influential families in Japanese history
The real story behind the ninja
A comprehensive look at how Japan rose to economic power in Asia
The devastating effects of World War II - and how Japan clawed its way back to strength
Fun facts about Japan - from earthquakes to fake food, and everything in between
Key cultural details you’ll definitely want to know if you plan to visit Japan
And much more.


Whether you’re a self-confessed Japanophile, or you simply want to enrich your knowledge, The History of Japan in a Nutshell will open your eyes to one of the most complex national histories in the world.

Everything we love about Japan was born out of a rich and nuanced past - and it’s all here, just waiting to be soaked up.
