NOW ON TRIAL: Japan Times and Japan Chronicle Weekly
A UC-wide trial to the Japan Times Archive and the Japan Chronicle Weekly is available through December 31, 2014.
More than a century of Japanese history, as it happened, in English, is available in The Japan Times. Every issue published between March 1897 through 2013 is available.
The English-language Japan Chronicle Weekly (1902-1940) is the newspaper of record for Japan’s engagement with modernity and its emergence, through war, political and social upheaval and seismic social change in East Asia, onto the world stage in the first half of the twentieth century. Historians of East Asia have long seen the Japan Chronicle as a uniquely valuable resource.
