Japan: Story of a Nation is another in a long line of exceedingly well written books in Japanese history by Ambassador Reischauer. Tracing the roots of Japanese civilization from before the mythical creation of the Japanese state and the reign of Jimmu to contemporary culture, Reischauer has accomplished something few have been able to: make history fun and enjoyable. The matter-of-fact text reads almost like a saga and is mercifully free of academic mumbo-jumbo

Of the two, East Asia surveys the modern period less ethnocentrically, not only in China, but in Japan, Vietnam, Korea. Meskill's collection contains essays by leading China specialists, several of which go beyond the usual summary, for example, of Anthropology, Art or Geography, and break new ground.

Despite its East Asian cultural origins, Japan evolved along a very different course to its neighbours; subsequently it became the only non-Western land to respond successfully to the challenge of superior Western technology in the nineteenth century and today it has become a leading nation of the so-called First World. These survivals from its past civilization give Japan an unusual cultural richness and seem to contribute special strengths as well as difficulties to its handling of the problems of modern urban society. Edwin O. Reischauer was US Ambassador to Japan and is a leading western authority on Japan, while Albert M. Craig is Professor of History at Harvard.
