    One thought on “Gendering Modern Japanese History”

    1. While the book was entirely educational, many chapters were overwhelming, especially later on in the book They contained a lot of numerical and statistical data that, frankly, to me, didn t mean very much to me The subject matter was fascinating though and it s very concise and thorough.
