Descriere:

In the wake of U.S. Navy Commodore Matthew C. Perry's first visit to Japan with his Black Ships in 1853, Japanese novelists and military analysts, along with a few foreign counterparts, produced a dizzying array of prophetic visions of this coming conflict, creating a massive body of popular works through which Japan would debate its own passage, however violent, into the modern, globalized era. Painstakingly researched by one of Japan's preeminent men of letters, Tokyo Prefecture Vice Governor Naoki Inose, The Century of the Black Ships is a landmark study of a literary tradition that anticipated the defining moment in the lives of a nation and its people.
