In the early decades of the twentieth century, Japanese cities became the staging ground for wide-ranging social, cultural, economic, and political transformations. During these years, the material and ideological structures that constitute “the city” took their characteristic modern shape. Telling this story from the perspective of the provincial city, Young looks at the rise of modern urbanism in four second-tier cities: Sapporo, Kanazawa, Niigata, and Okayama.
Louise Young is professor of Japanese history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is the author of Japan’s Total Empire: Manchuria and the Culture of Wartime Imperialism (University of California Press, 1998) and Beyond the Metropolis: Second Cities and Modern Life in Interwar Japan (University of California Press, 2013).
