Flaherty authors book chapter Flaherty authors book chapter 9/30/2022 4:00:00 AM<p><strong>Darryl Flaherty</strong>, associate professor of history, is the author of a book chapter written in Japanese analyzing the 250th anniversary of the Meiji Restoration (1868) in world historical context. The chapter argues that the Meiji restoration must be understood not only in a Japanese historical context but as a world event that emerged from, and casts a shadow on, the long flow of world history. His chapter, “Learning from Meiji: Globalizations Past, Present, and Future (Meiji ni manabu, kako, genzai, shōrai no gurōbaru-ka),” is part of <em>Lectures on Meiji History: Global Research Edition, </em>edited by Takii Kazuhiro<em> </em>(Meiji-shi kōgi: gurōbaru kenkyū-hen), Tokyo: Chikuma Shobō, 2022.​</p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#e59b718f-f2f3-4654-8986-5eea60d4f90b;L0|#0e59b718f-f2f3-4654-8986-5eea60d4f90b|Publications;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://www.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=218
