Book: The Human Tradition in Modern Japan, Vol. 3 , by Anne Walthall, ISBN10: 0842029125, ISBN13: 9780842029124, Scholarly Resources, Inc., January 2002, Paperback
The Human Tradition in Modern Japan is a collection of short biographies of ordinary Japanese men and women, most of them unknown outside their family and locality, whose lives collectively span the seventeenth through twentieth centuries. Their stories present a counterweight to the prevailing stereotypes, providing readers with depictions of real people through the records they have left-records that detail experiences and aspirations.
The Human Tradition in Modern Japan offers a human-scale perspective that focuses on individuals, reconstitutes the meaning of people's experiences as they lived through them, and puts a human face on history. It skillfully bridges the divides between the sexes, between the local and the national, and between rural and urban, as well as spanning crucial moments in the history of modern Japan.
