Samurai, Daimyo, Matthew Perry, and Nationalism: Crash Course World History #34

In which John Green teaches you about Nationalism. Nationalism was everywhere in the 19th century, as people all over the world carved new nation-states out of old empires. Nationalist leaders changed the way people thought of themselves and the places they lived by reinventing education, military service, and the relationship between government and governed. In Japan, the traditional feudal society underwent a long transformation over the course of about 300 years to become a modern nation-state. John follows the course of Japanese history from the emergence of the Tokugawa Shogunate to the Meiji Restoration, and covers Nationalism in many other countries along the way. All this, plus a special guest appearance, plus the return of an old friend on a extra-special episode of Crash Course.Resources:A Modern History of Japan by Andrew Gordon http://dft.ba/-GordonJapanGiving Up the Gun by Noel Perrin http://dft.ba/-PerrinGunFollow [email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@thoughtbubblerLike us!http://www.facebook.com/youtubecrashcourseFollow us again!http://thecrashcourse.tumblr.comLook at this!
