Summary: "Finally, Conrad Totman has answered the call of more than a few educators for an up-to-date survey of the Japanese experience during the Tokugawa years. . . . Totman has dug extensively in the stacks to pull out material from a vast array of useful sources. . . . A work of immense erudition."--Constantine N. Vaporis, Monumenta Nipponica

This thoughtfully organized survey of Japan's early modern period (1568-1868) is a remarkable blend of politica
l, economic, intellectual, literary, and cultural history. The only truly comprehensive study in English of the Tokugawa period, it also introduces a new ecological perspective, covering natural disasters, resource use, demographics, and river control.

"Indispensable. . . . Beginning with the reunification of the country in the mid-16th century and continuing to the final disintegration of the Tokugawa order in the second half of the 19th century, Totman reviews all the major elements of Japanese historical development, offering a tremendous wealth of information in language that is clear, concise, and easy to comprehend."--C. L. Yates, Choice
