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

84 editions published between 1964 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,890 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 )

37 editions published between 1963 and 2010 in English and held by 1,246 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 pillow book of Sei Shōnagon by Sei Shōnagon( Book )

45 editions published between 1967 and 1991 in English and held by 1,051 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
The nobility of failure : tragic heroes in the history of Japan by Ivan I Morris( Book )

26 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many of the most revered heroes lost their lives without achieving their goals, and in many cases fought their battles in full realization that they would end in abject defeat and death. This cultural background remains a bedrock underlying the modern Japanese psyche, and continues to shape the Japanese as individuals and a society even today, unc

Fires on the plain by Shōhei Ōoka( Book )

23 editions published between 1957 and 1992 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This haunting novel explores the complete degradation and isolation of a man by war. The book is set on the island of Leyte in the Philippines during World War II, where the Japanese army is disintegrating under the hammer blows of the American landings. Within this larger disintegration is another, that of a single human being, Private Tamura. The war destroys each of his ties to society, one by one, until Tamura, a sensitive and intelligent man, becomes an outcast." "Nearly losing the will to survive, he hears of a port still in Japanese hands, and struggles to walk through the American lines. Unfazed by danger, he welcomes the prospect of dying, but first he loses his hope, and then his sanity. Lost among his hallucinations, Tamura comes to fancy himself an angel enjoined by God to eat no living thing - but even angels fall." "Tamura is never less than human, even when driven to the ultimate sin against humanity. Shocking as the outward events are, the greatness of the novel lies in its uplifting vision during a time of crushing horror."--Jacket
