The historical process in mid-nineteenth century Japan is known as the Meiji Restoration was a major revolutionary change… Less well known is how decisions at the centre were transmitted to the provinces and especially to those provinces which were not involved in the great events at Kyoto or Edo. This is the world that James Baxter examines… By the time Japan became a constitutional monarchy in 1889, a major revolution had taken place throughout the country built up from the local level as much as from the centre down. This book will be required reading for all those who wish to understand that process. It is well written and well argued.—J. E. Hoare, Asian Affairs
