Japanese History

Publisher: Wikibooks

Description:
Japan today is a modern democracy and economy comparable to the European and USA model of politico-economics. This has not always been the case and throughout most of its history Japan practiced an 'isolationist' policy that allowed trade and contact with foreigners but restricted their movement and influence to small enclaves on the coast.
