About this product
- DescriptionThis work examines how Japanese historians interpreted the ancient myths of Japan's origins, which lay at the core of Japanese identity and provided legitimacy for the imperial state. It focuses on the theme of conflict and accommodation between scholars on one side, and government and society on the other. The author follows the historians' reactions to pressure and trends and their eventual understanding of history as a science in the service of the Japanese nation.
