Hello all.
Recently I’ve taken an interest in period between the First World War and the Second World War.

From what I’ve glanced at there is an abundance of work about the Weimar Republic and Italy and on the rise of Nazism and Fascism. However, I haven’t seen as much work on Japan in the inter-war years.

Does anybody have book recommendations on Japan during the Inter-war period?

Thank you.

I recently read a book entitled "Pearl Harbor: The Missing Motive" (2015). Author is Kevin O'Connell. The author goes fairly far back in Japanese history to evaluate the political, cultural, and economic factors that eventually led to the decision to make war on the U.S. The situation between the wars is emphasized.

I can't say it is the most well written book I have read, but it does cover the subject. I read this in the Kindle edition.
