Book Announcement: Christianity and Imperialism in Modern Japan

Christianity and ImperialismSOAS STUDIES IN MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY JAPAN

Christianity and Imperialism in Modern Japan.  Emily Anderson
October 2014

Christianity and Imperialism in Modern Japan explores how Japanese Protestants engaged with the unsettling changes that resulted from Japan’s emergence as a world power in the early twentieth century. Through this analysis, the book offers a new perspective on the intersection of religion and imperialism in
modern Japan.

Emily Anderson reassesses religion as a critical site of negotiation between the state and its subjects as part of Japan’s emergence as a modern nation-state and colonial empire. The book shows how religion, including its adherents and the state’s attempts to determine acceptable belief, is a necessary subject of study for a nuanced understanding of modern Japanese history

Published in association with Bloomsbury, this series features new research monographs as well as translations of scholarship not previously available in English. Our goal is to publish high quality, peer-reviewed research on Japan, its history, politics and culture.
