"...a project that bears the marks of careful planning and organization by experienced editors who are themselves distinguished historians of Japan....Clearly written and free of jargon, all essays contain topical subheadings that are helpfully placed at the top of the pages as well as within the texts." E. Patricia Tsurumi, Canadian Journal of History
"...a tour de force that at once represents the culmination of several generations of scholarship and heralds the advent of a new level of sophistication in the study of Japan's early modern history." Harvard Journal of Asiatic Studies
Volume 4 covers the years from 1550 to 1800, a short but surprisingly eventful period in Japanese history commonly referred to as Japan's Early Modern Age, from the growth of near-autonomous ddomains, through the period of the shogunate to the Meiji restoration. This volume attempts to flesh out the historical tale with insights into the way that people lived and worked.
