Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sources of Japanese Tradition, Volume 2, Second Edition is now available as an abridged two-part paperback. For Almost Fifty years, Sources of Japanese Tradition has been used as a textbook by students and scholars of philosophy, religion, cultural history, literature, and other fields in the humanities and by readers seeking an introduction to Japanese civilization. Part I 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.

Synopsis:

For almost fifty years, Sources of Japanese Tradition has been the single most valuable collection of English-language readings on Japan. Unrivalled in its wide selection of source materials on history, society, politics, education, philosophy, and religion, the two-volume textbook is a crucial resource for students, scholars, and readers seeking an introduction to Japanese civilization.

Originally published in a single hardcover book, Volume 2 is now available as an abridged, two-part paperback. Part 1 covers the Tokugawa period to 1868, including texts that address the spread of neo-Confucianism and Buddhism and the initial encounters of Japan and the West. Part 2 begins with the Meiji period and ends at the new millennium, shedding light on such major movements as the Enlightenment, constitutionalism, nationalism, socialism, and feminism, and the impact of the postwar occupation. Commentary by major scholars and comprehensive bibliographies and indexes are included.

Together, these readings map out the development of modern Japanese civilization and illuminate the thought and teachings of its intellectual, political, and religious leaders.
