Still, I thought the book was a steal at $1, because even the basic facts of Japan’s history were unknown to me. I’d heard the term Meiji Restoration before, but I had no idea to what event it was referring. Now I know. I knew that Japan had colonized Korea, but I didn’t know when this happened. Was it immediately before World War II? Or was it something that went back as far as time? Turns out neither, but definitely closer to World War II.
