Chapter Summary

This section of the book The Emperors of Modern Japanpresents a list of reference books in English which have been recommended by the author. The book deals with general themes related to the imperial institution in modern Japan. It examines the history of the imperial family and the reasons for its long survival. The book reveals that besides the orthodox tradition of an unchanging and unbroken dynasty, there existed, until the fourteenth century a different tradition, which predicted that the imperial line would come to an end with the 100th emperor.
