A History of Japan: 1334-1615 describes the growth of a new feudal hierarchy, the ebb and flow . Sir George Sansom was a British diplomat and historian of pre-modern Japan

This is the period of expanding relations with other parts of Asia and of the arrival of traders and missionaries from European countries-the first contact of Japan with the West. Sir George Sansom was a British diplomat and historian of pre-modern Japan. He authored several books, including Japan: A Short Cultural History, An Historical Grammar of Japanese, The Western World and Japan, and Japan in World History.

Only 12 left in stock (more on the way). In my opinion, George Sansom's three-volume "A History of Japan" series is an essential component of the library of anyone interested in Japanese culture. I personally have had a long-time interest in Japanese video games, anime, music, literature, and art. Even so, I found that I didn't actually know much about Japan's historical background beyond the limited information I had encountered in World History textbooks.

Sir George Sansom was a British diplomat and historian of pre-modern Japan. Country of Publication.

Explains the structure of the feudal society, describes the rise of economic life and tells of the impact of Commodore Perry's arrival in 1853. Bibliographical notes

Wow. How do I start this.

This is part of a massive 3-volume history of Japan. It is very complete as to the politics and, very often, the economics of why the rulers of Japan did what they did when. Scholarly without being totally desiccated the prose is imminently readable and enjoyable. This is not for the casual reader, unless said casual reader is very eclectic in their reading.

Detailed, very detailed. And I'm not catching any major (nor really, minor) mistakes. The series becomes increasingly better as history progresses but mainly because the source material becomes increasingly better, a problem any historiographer will have.

Any of the three volumes is readable in and of itself, but as with all history knowing what came before is of importance. The three volumes divide Japanese history into 3 uneven periods; Volume 1 essentially deals with the history up to through the early feudal period and the rise of the military class, Sansom cuts this off at 1333. Volume 2 essentially deals with the Sengoku Period where the country was being united by the warlords, ending with Volume 3, the Tokugawa Shogunate to the beginning of the Meiji Restoration. Sadly, due to Author Existence Failure there won't be any subsequent volumes. A fourth volume of Modern Japan, 1867 - 1955 would have been fascinating, especially in that Sansom participated in much of the postwar occupation of Japan as well having had been a diplomat in the period leading up to the war in the Far East. Happily there are other volumes by him that addresses some of this, and other Japanese topics.

For the historian of Far East Asia I cannot praise this series enough. For the history student, I recommend the series as a marvelous example of how history should be written. For the casual reader, it can be a slog. Japanese names are daunting enough and then there's the Japanese habit of changing names, sometimes radically so. Some Japanese cultural aspects also take getting accustomed to, but as long as you remember it is their culture and they are allowed to have their culture their way (something too few people remember...) then it will be alright.

A bit wordy, but then if you aren't willing to read, there are always videos. Excellent and elegant reference.
