The origins of socialist thought in Japan - John Crump

Socialism first gained a major foothold in Japan after the revolution and the subsequent Meiji restoration of 1868.

This book made an original contribution to the study of Japan in the 1980s, its unique perspective shines a bright light on debates still relevant today.
