This is the fourth of six volumes designed to explore the history of Japan from prehistoric to modern times. 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. At the start, in the sixteenth century, much of the country was being pulled apart by local military lords engaged in a struggle for land and local hegemony. These daimyo succeeded in dividing Japan into nearly autonomous regional domains. Before the end of the seventeenth century, however, the daimyo in turn were subjected to a powerful unification movement led by three colourful figures, Nobunaga, Hideyoshi, and Ieyasu. It was under Tokugawa Ieyasu, the last of the unifiers, that Japan was brought together under a single powerful command vested in the office of shogun. The Tokugawa hegemony lasted until 1868 when it was brought down by the Meiji Restoration. This volume attempts to flesh out the historical tale with insights into the way that people lived and worked. It examines the relationship between peasant and local lord, and between the lord, as a unit of local government, and the emerging shogunate. It offers new

The author has used Japanese sources almost exclusively in this study of Tanuma, who rose from being a page to become a feudal lord of wealth and influence. His state policies were based on practical and progressive reasoning. His liberal policies might have brought an end to a long period of national seclusion and hastened Japan on the path toward modernization. However he failed, and instead went down in disgrace

The Cambridge history of Japan by Kōzō Yamamura( Book )

8 editions published between 1990 and 2006 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This third volume of the Cambridge History of Japan is devoted to the three and a half centuries spanning the final decades of the twelfth century when the Kamakura bakufu was founded to the mid-sixteenth century when civil wars raged following the demise of the Muromachi bakufu. Volume 3 contains 13 specially commissioned essays written by leading Japanese and American scholars that survey the historical events and developments in medieval Japan's polity, economy, society and culture, as well as its relations with its Asian neighbours. The essays reflect the most recent scholarly research on the history of this period. The volume creates a rich tapestry of the events that took place during these colourful centuries, when the warrior class ruled Japan, institutions underwent fundamental transformations, the economy grew steadily, and Japanese culture and society evolved with surprising vitality to leave legacies that still characterize and affect contemporary Japan. A meticulously prepared glossary of terms and a chronological table of major historical events and developments are included
