by Michael R. Auslinvia Times Literary Supplement (UK)
Friday, January 12, 2018

150 years ago this month, a group of mid-ranking samurai propelled Japan and Asia into the modern age. When these young warriors took over the Imperial Palace on the morning of January 3, 1868, they did so to “restore” imperial rule by the young Emperor Meiji. They were a disparate group of radicals and reformers, modernizers and xenophobes.
