Tradition and modernization in japanese culture by Donald H Shively( )

6 editions published between 1971 and 2016 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essays on the Iwakura Embassy, the realistic painter Takahashi Yuichi, the educational system, and music, show how the Japanese went about borrowing from the West in the first decades after the Restoration: the formulation of strategies for modernizing and the adaptation of Western models to Meiji culture. In the second half of the volume, the darker side, the pathology of modernization, is seen. The adjustment of the individual and the effects of progressive modernization on culture in an increasingly complex, twentieth-century society are recurring themes. They are illustrated with particular intensity in the experience of such writers as Natsume Soseki and Kobayashi Hideo, in the thought of Nishida Kitaro, and in the millenarian aspects of the new religions. Originally published in 1976.

The love suicide at Amijima : a study of a Japanese domestic tragedy by Chikamatsu Monzaemon by Monzaemon Chikamatsu( Book )

15 editions published between 1953 and 1991 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Love Suicides at Amijima, classic Bunraku (puppet theatre) play by Chikamatsu Monzaemon, written and performed about 1720 as Shinjū ten no Amijima. Like most of Chikamatsu’s more than 20 love-suicide dramas, it was based on an actual event, the outcome of the brothel system. These works made love suicides so popular that they were outlawed, and any survivor was charged with murder.Jihei, a paper merchant, falls in love with the 19-year-old prostitute Koharu, but he cannot afford to buy her release from her brothel. Though the lovers’ exchanges are amusing in early passages of the play, the complicated tensions of duty and desire lead to a tragic decision: since their inflexible society makes their love impossible, Jihei and Koharu will seek to be joined in the afterlife. --text from Encyclopedia Britannica (see link(

The Cambridge history of Japan by Kōzō Yamamura( Book )

6 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in English and held by 35 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
Heian Japan by Donald H Shively( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides the most comprehensive treatment of the Heian period, the golden age of the Japanese imperial court, in any Western language. From Heian-kyo, founded in 794, the Japanese emperor ruled over an elaborate government modelled on China's absolute monarchy. Ambassadors to the T'ang court and students studying in China brought back laws, ideas, Buddhism, temple architecture, sculpture, and wall-painting. Chinese influences blended with native Japanese elements in courtly painting, calligraphy, poetry and prose. The world's first novel, The Tale of Genji, was completed about 1020. In 1185 the elegant and peaceful world of the court was shattered by the struggle of the Taira and Minamoto warrior clans, who usurped real political power and left the emperor with a symbolic, legitimizing role. Contributors to this volume emphasize political history, the land system, provincial administration, the capital and its society, aristocratic culture, and the acceptance of Buddhism and popular religious practices

The volume consists of an interrelated collection of authoritative and analytical chapters by specialists in the history of nineteenth-century Japan that discuss the fissures in late feudal society, the impact of and responses to the West, the overthrow of the shogunal government, and the revolutionary changes that were instituted as defensive measures to strengthen the country against what seemed a dangerous competition with the Western world.

The Cambridge history of Japan by John Whitney Hall( Book )

3 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
