Yang carefully examines Japan’s submarine and wireless telegraph and telephone networks and the ways in which the emerging system grew within Japan’s expanding empire, as well as the ways in which the configuration of the system supported the empire and was, in tum, shaped by the demands and complexity of it. Scholars and graduate students interested in modern Japan, comparative empires, and/or technology and society will learn much from this new, important book.—W.D. Kinzley, Choice
