Presented by distinguished guest speaker Louise Young. Gain new insight into the economic and cultural shift that took place within Japan post World War II.

Japan built a wartime empire in asia in the 1930s, and after losing that empire in 1945 created a trading imperium under the American cold war umbrella. Join us for this fascinating lecture exploring the economic, social and political forces that have led to the formation of modern japan. A one-time only event!
