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.
