The Japanese Nation: a Social Survey
The Japanese Nation: a Social Survey
By John F. Embree
Farrar, 1945, 308 pp

This is a very serviceable introduction to the social, cultural and political structure of Japan. The author knows the Japanese people at first hand, and his synthesis combines keen scholarship with an approach and style aimed at the layman. In the appendix he has included the Japanese constitution, a glossary and a bibliography.
