Giving Up the Gun: Japan's Reversion to the Sword, 1543-1879 - Noel Perrin

This was an interesting look at how Japan gave up an entire form of technology in the 17th century. While Perrin is no expert on Japan, and his overall observations about technology are a little dated, he is a superb writer who makes his arguments effectively and with passion.
