For almost fifty years, "Sources of Japanese Tradition" has been used as a textbook by scholars of philosophy, religion, cultural history, literature, and other fields in the humanities, and by general readers seeking an introduction to Japanese civilization. Part 1 of this abridgement covers the Tokugawa period, from 1600 to 1868. Part 2 begins with the Meiji period and spans all the major movements and eras to the present. Commentary by major scholars in the field is still included.
