Books on Japan History,  Emperor in Persian Books on Japan History,  Emperor in Persian

Two books on Japan’s modern era, written and translated by the acclaimed researcher and translator Hashem Rajabzadeh, have been published by Jahan-e Ketab publication.
Rajabzadeh has rendered “Emperor of Japan: Meiji and His World, 1852-1912” written by Japanese scholar and historian Donald Keene into Persian and also published his own research “History of Renovation in Japan,” ISNA reported on its Persian website.
The important translation offers insight into industrial and modern Japan that coincides with the late Qajar era. The Emperor Meiji was contemporary to Qajar king Naser al-Din Shah (1831-1896)
Keene sifts the available evidence to present a rich portrait not only of Meiji but also of rapid, and sometimes violent, change during this crucial period in Japan’s history.
