Nishiyama book cover

Takashi Nishiyama recently published Engineering War and Peace in Modern Japan, 1868-1964 (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2014), which addresses the development of the Shinkansen during the 20th century. According to Nishiyama, although he did not use materials from the Prange Collection specifically for this project, his research in the collection helped him shape the way he looked at the engineering project.

Professor Nishiyama is a 2005 – 2006 recipient of the 20th Century Japan Research Award.
