HAS 386 NYU How Second World War Influenced Japan and Its Relationship with America Paper Course Description Japan in the twentieth century is like an abridged world history textbook. The country that had been fragmented among the competing daimyos and samurais, andalmost invisiblemonarchy, rose to prominence withthe help ofadvanced technological progress and pragmatic government policies in the late nineteenth century. Thanks to the wholehearted embracement of Western modernity, Japan narrowly escaped from colonization and became one of the most important imperial and economic powers in the twentieth century world. Modern Japan is indeedfascinating for a comparative take on the significant themes of modern global history: the impacts of industrial revolution, the rise of modern empire and imperialism, the experience of total war and colonizationand the dramatic economic growth from the ashes of war. This course examines the history of Japan betweenthe late nineteenth century andthe end of the twentieth century from global historical perspectives. Theexamination is divided into three parts, organized by chronological order. The first part looks at the historical, political contextsthat gave a rise to the Meiji Restoration/Reformation in 1868and its impacts to the making of modern Japan. The second part of the course surveys the rise of Japanese empire and its empire-buildingeffortsat home and abroad between 1900-1945. The last part of the coursefocuses on the second half of the twentieth century to better understand lights and shadows of so-called East Asian Miraclesand Japanese modernity as well. Building upon this three-part survey, the course aims at comprehendingthe ways in whichthe history of modern Japan illuminates the East Asian concept of the modernity that has evolved from mimicry to a creative adaptation throughout the dynamictwentieth century.

and group of people that you want to examine. To effectively present your main argument and evidence, limit the
period of time you examine and identify the place and people you will focus from the first phase of outlining. Next,
write one or two questions you want to explore (thesis statement). Answer the question based on your hypothesis
and/or your knowledge and understanding about the topic (main argument). This constitutes a one-paragraph
summary of the planned major arguments. Finally, using the course syllabus, references from the reading materials,
and other materials like book chapter/journal/news articles, films, select both primary and secondary sources that
trigger questions and also may help your argumentation.
