How to Think About Japan’s Twentieth Century History

February 21, 2017 • 2:30 – 4:00 pm EST
CSIS will release two edited volumes: A Global History of the Twentieth Century: Legacies and Lessons from Six National Perspectives, which examines Japan's experience in war and peace in the context of a global history of the twentieth century from six national perspectives (US, Japan, India, China, Germany, and Turkey); and, Postwar Japan: Growth, Security, and Uncertainty since 1945, which focuses specifically on Japan's own post-war recovery and rise to uncertain leadership in Asia and the world.

Please join us for a panel discussion by leading historians and Asia scholars on Japan's twentieth century history and historical memory in a global context.
