Hamza Nakhoda Laurie Stahle EASC 150g February 20, 2008 Reading Response 2 Ian Buruma, the author of Inventing Japan, in his book tells us about Japan’s history from 1853 to about a decade after that. This book is a good insight into how a completely sealed off country is now butting heads with superpowers in the world in the industrial and economical fields. Japans history was more like a roller coaster ride with Perry’s arrival, Meiji restoration, Sino Japanese wars, Russo Japanese war, Pearl Harbor, Hiroshima Nagasaki, World War II and many other events. Buruma’s book is also an important text and gives support to the differences between China and Japan as developing countries. We can use this book in conjunction with the Levy article, Moulder article and the Nova Series The Genius That Was China . He tells us about how Japan’s military and army was no match for China’s inferior soldiers and the Sino Japanese wars were extremely one sided.
