Slogging my way through The Making of Modern Japan. It's taken me most of a week to get through 100 pages. The writing isn't bad, but the subject matter is a bit dry, to say the least. I think it will pick up after we get to the Meiji period. The Shogunate period makes for some cool movies and all, but was pretty goddam boring from a geopolitical perspective.
