      A Modern History of Japan: From Tokugawa Times to the Present by Andrew Gordon A History of Japan, by George Sansom World Within Walls by Donald Keene.   In the years since World War II, as in the period before, the hybrid nature of Japan’s constitutional framework has inevitably created gaps between the letter of the law and its application. This has enabled the system to respond flexibly to the tide of the times and doubtless abetted the evolution of Japan’s democracy and the country’s.

    Japanese Political History Since the Meiji Restoration, explores, through a combination of narrative and analysis, the changes in the political process which lay behind Japan's transformation into a modern nation state; its successive turn toward militarism, fascism, and the Pacific War; and the imposition of a fully democratic constitution. The List of Japanese eras is a traditional calendar system which began during the reign of Emperor Kōtoku in the 7th calendar has been in use in Japan since the beginning of the 8th century.. The historical Japanese calendar system defines and parses time in terms of ordinal numbers.

    This book is a collection of the proceedings of a conference on Japanese Law held at Harvard University’s Law School in September While some of the essays require a prior knowledge of legal procedure and terminology, the bulk of the volume is dedicated to interpreting the Japanese system of law for an American audience. But even the Ainu had law, though not written, but nonetheless customs followed implicitly by the people and handed down from generation to generation. Even as we go through the epochs of Japanese “law”, until the reforms begun in , Japan never did have a clear, concise body of law on contracts, for example, or torts.
