The world of the shining prince : court life in ancient Japan by Ivan I Morris( Book )

98 editions published between 1964 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 1,977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using The Tale of Genji and other major literary works from Japan's Heian period as a frame of reference, The World of the Shining Prince recreates an era when women set the cultural tone. Focusing on the world of the emperor's court--a world deeply admired by Virginia Woolf, among others--renowned scholar of Japanese history and literature Ivan Morris explores the politics, society, religious life, and superstitions of the period. Offering readers detailed portrayals of the daily lives of courtiers, the cult of beauty they espoused, and the intricate relations between the men and women of the age, The World of the Shining Prince has been a cornerstone text on ancient Japan for half a century."--Publisher's description

Thought and behaviour in modern Japanese politics by Masao Maruyama( Book )

46 editions published between 1963 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author analyzes the Japanese political scene in terms of the general cultural context and the pattern of inter-personal relationships with particular attention to the impact of non-political behaviour and activities on politics. He describes the underlying value-systems of the Japanese, especially those of the ruling elites, and their effect on the political leaders and their discussions. He also sets out to show how contemporary ideological tensions have been aggravated by the refusal of both sides to recognize that there are political features common to all societies which, in a given situation and irrespective of ideology, make certain patters of behaviour inevitable.--
The nobility of failure : tragic heroes in the history of Japan by Ivan I Morris( Book )

38 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japan's heroic tradition is in startling contrast to that of the West. The most beloved Japanese heroes chose defeat and certain death rather than sully the purity of their ideals with compromise and petty calculation. The lives of nine of these heroes of Japanese history are related here, beginning with a legendary fourth-century prince and concluding with the kamikaze pilots of World War II. with The Nobility of Failure, Ivan Morris opens a new window onto the Japanese people. - Back cover
The pillow book of Sei Shōnagon by Sei Shōnagon( Book )

48 editions published between 1967 and 1991 in English and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written by the court gentlewoman Sei Shonagon, ostensibly for her own amusement, The Pillow Book offers a fascinating exploration of life among the nobility at the height of the Heian period, describing the exquisite pleasures of a confined world in which poetry, love, fashion, and whim dominated, while harsh reality was kept firmly at a distance. Moving elegantly across a wide range of themes including nature, society, and her own flirtations, Sei Shonagon provides a witty and intimate window on a woman's life at court in classical Japan." -- Publisher's description
