Japan and Its World
Two Centuries of Change
Marius B. Jansen
With a new preface by the author


Long recognized as an authority on Japanese history, Marius Jansen synthesizes a lifetime of scholarship in this landmark book. Bringing together the series of Brown and Haley lectures delivered in 1975 at the University of Puget Sound, Japan and Its World continues to be a source of insight for anyone interested in the changing ideas the Japanese have had of themselves, the United States, and the Western world during the past two centuries.

Marius Jansen is Professor Emeritus of History and East Asian Studies at Princeton University.
