Once a star of postwar industrial production and methods, Japan has encountered serious trouble with market forces in recent years. Social changes and departures from tradition are becoming more common in this conservative country. The revised edition of the popular work, Japan: Its History and Culture, Fourth Edition, documents and explains these changes. Seamlessly blending current events, politics, and cultural elements, the authors provide a riveting account of a nation often misunderstood by the West.

Die gesamte Geschichte Ostasiens – Chinas, Koreas und Japans – von der Frühzeit bis 1800 in einem Band Der renommierte China-Kenner und Sinologe Dieter Kuhn entfaltet das ganze Panorama der chinesischen, koreanischen und japanischen Geschichte und Kultur über rund 3000 Jahre. Er erzählt von Schlachten, Dynastien und Kaisern, von den Samurais und der Lehre des Konfuzius, von Buddhismus und Ahnenkult. Er beschreibt die prächtigen Hauptstädte, die nach konfuzianischen Prinzipien angelegt waren, und schildert die zahlreichen wissenschaftlichen Errungenschaften, die bis nach Europa gelangten. Dabei wird deutlich, wie sehr die chinesische Kultur den gesamten ostasiatischen Raum geprägt hat. Dennoch bewahrten Korea und Japan eine jeweils eigene Identität, wie Dieter Kuhn eindrucksvoll vor Augen führt. Der Band ist mit 16 Karten und 24 Abbildungen hervorragend illustriert. Die ›Neue Fischer Weltgeschichte‹ ist die erste umfassende Universalgeschichte des 21. Jahrhunderts. Ein Standardwerk auf Jahre hin für Schule, Studium und Weiterbildung.
