A comprehensive history of the land of the Rising Sun, from its ancient origins to its fascinating present. Few countries have been the subject of so much scholarly attention yet remain so elusive. An increasingly familiar nation through shared tourism and business relationships, there's still a great deal about Japan and its past that defies categorization or generalization; a great deal that leaves the visitor puzzled.
