Summary: This balanced account of Japanese history focuses on developments in art, religion, literature, and thought as well as economic, political, and social history in a new four color-format. In addition to Conrad Schirokauer, this text has two new authors. Suzanne Gay is Professor of East Asian Studies at Oberlin College. Her research interests include the social and economic history of medieval Japan, with a particular emphasis on the role of commoners in history. David...show more Lurie researches the history of writing systems in Japan and also works on the cultural and intellectual history of Japan through the Heian period. This author team combines strong research with extensive classroom teaching experience to offer a clear, consistent, and highly readable text accessible to students with no previous knowledge of the history of Japan.
NEW! Two new co-authors bring the latest scholarship of the early and middle periods. Enhanced content includes a reinterpretation of Shinto, a fuller account of state-formation, and a more balanced account of Kamakura and Muromachi periods, especially the nature and role of warriors.
NEW! A new four-color design presents timelines and maps in a more appealing and prevalent fashion, making it easier for students to read and understand. It also greatly enhances the numerous illustrations, mostly of works of art.
NEW! This book largely consists of the Japanese portions of A Brief History of Chinese and Japanese Civilizations, Third Edition.
Great scholarship, clear narrative, and strong visuals combine to create a text that is academically sound as well as interesting to students.
Emphasizing Japanese cultural history, while also covering political and economic history, this edition highlights key topics with maps, timelines, and other visuals.
