Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Kyushu: Gateway to Japan: A Concise History contains the table of contents, a list of maps, list of plates, preface and the introduction. The book highlights some of the undercurrents within the mainstream of Japanese history by presenting a regional field of view located between these local and national perspectives. It provides an overview with a closer focus on salient themes in Kyushu's development than can be found in most general histories. Since the author's approach is framed within the broader context of the Japanese islands, much of the material is undoubtedly familiar to readers acquainted with Japanese history. Some episodes may also seem familiar in that so many key events with wider implications have unfolded in a Kyushu setting. The regional angle emphasized in the book helps to cast them in a fresh light not always obvious when viewed from the centre.

Keywords: Japanese history; Kyushu's development
