Chapter Summary

This section describes list of all contributors for this book The Emperors of Modern Japan. The book presents a broad picture of the four modern emperors who reigned during the 140 years between 1867 and 2007. They descended in a direct line from father to son, but were different in character and behavior from one another. The book examines part of the ways in which they acted and reacted, the role of their wives, the ideologies that were woven around them, their religious functions and interests, the debate over war responsibility, the mixed feelings toward them on the Left and the Right, and the problem of imperial succession.

Keywords: imperial succession; modern Japan
