This is the second of prerecorded lecture for History 194C. It covers the contents for about the last third of "Meiji Restoration" week and appx. first half of "Constitutional Government" week, roughly corresponding to the October 8 and 13 lectures during the regular classes. Please try to use pen and paper to take down notes as in the usual lecture sessions. Do not overly rely on PowerPoint summaries, as they are only rudimentary guidelines for understanding the contents of the lecture.
