Christianity and Imperialism in Modern Japan: Empire for God

Item # 152765.

By Emily Anderson.

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 20th century.  Through this analysis, the book offers a new perspective on the  intersection of religion and imperialism in modern Japan.

The author 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.
