This concluding chapter explains that younger scholars are better equipped to handle Japanese language sources than many of the generation that followed the wartime-trained specialists. The Inter-University Center and the considerable improvement in language training at universities may be cited for this development. They also are producing works much more sophisticated, and seen from perspectives that had escaped the older generation. The chapter, however, notes one minor “failing,” which is the apparent lack of interest in the Anglophone literature produced from the mid-nineteenth century through the early postwar years. These works can be utilized to give historical continuity to any analysis and interpretation of modern Japanese history.
