The culture of civil war in Kyoto by Mary Elizabeth Berry( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After 1467, war became commonplace in Japan. This book explores that commonplace--the everyday terrain of violence that men and women traced in their diaries, their suits and petitions, their marches and rebellions, their dancing. This is not a book about battles, causes, and resolutions. It is a book about the backwash of battle in a great city, the murkiness and volatility of purpose that marked ever new conflicts. It is about the absence of closure--the resistance to closure--in a long war that broke apart medieval attachments and identities to require fearsome trials with alternatives
Japan in print : information and nation in the early modern period by Mary Elizabeth Berry( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A quiet revolution in knowledge separated the early modern period in Japan from all previous time. After 1600, self-appointed investigators used the model of the land and cartographic surveys of the newly unified state to observe and order subjects such as agronomy, medicine, gastronomy, commerce, travel, and entertainment. They subsequently circulated their findings through a variety of commercially printed texts: maps, gazetteers, family encyclopedias, urban directories, travel guides, official personnel rosters, and instruction manuals for everything from farming to lovemaking. In this original and gracefully written book, Mary Elizabeth Berry considers the social processes that drove the information explosion of the 1600s. Inviting readers to examine the contours and meanings of this transformation, Berry provides a fascinating account of the conversion of the public from an object of state surveillance into a subject of self-knowledge."--BOOK JACKET

Summer Study Program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics; Order and Disorder Planetary Dynamos( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This volume contains the lectures of Stephen Childress on the kinematic properties of the 'fast' dynamo, one whose growth rate is insensitive to electrical conductivity. These novel studies and the extended seminar abstracts by Andrew Soward and others that follow offer assurance of more mechanistic understanding of evolving magnetic fields in stars and planets. The timely juxtaposition of Childress' lectures on kinematic fast dynamos and the seminars by Bruce Bayly on inertial three-dimensional instabilities of shear flow, may lead soon to a dynamic fast-fast dynamo. The final section contains the fellows' reports, which were more confined to the summer topic than is usual. Several of the Fellows reported on exciting discoveries of the season, several reported on sound extensions of work discussed in the principal lectures, and several struggled with problems which resisted swift resolution. Keywords: Planetary dynamos; Geophysical fluid dynamics; Geomagnetism. (jhd)
