Member book, Benesch and Zwigenberg, Japan's Castles: Citadels of Modernity in War and Peace

Apologies for cross-postings. I'm pleased to announce the publication of Ran Zwigenberg and my new book, Japan's Castles: Citadels of Modernity in War and Peace (Cambridge University Press, 2019, 376pp, ISBN: 9781108680578).
 
The book is a treatment of the modern history of castles from the 1860s to the present, focusing on the uses of Japan's premodern heritage, and I hope it might be of interest to members of this list.
