Abstract:

The reign of the Tokugawa shoguns was a time of state building and cultural transformation, but it was also a period of ikki: peasant rebellion. James W. White reconstructs the pattern of social conflict in early modern Japan, both among common people and between the populace and the government. Ikki is the first book to cover popular protest in all regions of Japan and to encompass nearly three centuries of history, from the beginnings of the Tokugawa shogunate in the 1590s to the Meiji restoration. White applies contemporary sociological theory to evidence unavailable in English. He draws on the long historical record of peasant uprisings, using narrative interpretation and sophisticated quantitative analysis. By linking the texture of conflict to the political and economic regime the shoguns created, he casts doubt on competing interpretations of a contained, orderly society.

After an overview of the institutional and political contexts for Ikki, White uses individual cases and significant trends to describe Tokugawa-era resistance, its frequency and magnitude, and the organization, motivation, and tactics of the people involved. He links the forms and characteristics of contention to broad economic, social, and political currents and argues that peasants and urban masses rationally weighed their grievances, opportunities, and resources before choosing rebellion. He also examines the impact of popular protest on the evolution of Japan, and he draws general conclusions about friction in other societies as well.
