    This is a fresh and surprising account of Japan's culture from the 'opening up' of the country in the mid-19th century to the present. It is told through the eyes of people who greeted this change not with the confidence and grasping ambition of Japan's modernisers and nationalists but with resistance, conflict, distress. We encounter writers of dramas, ghost stories and crime novels where modernity itself is the tragedy, the ghoul and the bad guy; surrealist and avant-garde artists sketching their escape.
