Sources of Japanese Tradition: Volume 1by Wm Theodore De Bary
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
To provide an understanding of the background of contemporary Japanese civilization, the editors present material that illustrates Japanese thought since earliest times. The traditions represented range from early Shinto and Buudhism to Confucianism. Appearing here are such figures as the versatile Kukai, founder of the esoteric school of Buddhism; Seami, the great No dramatist; Hideyoshi, the foot soldier who dreamed of world conquest; and Yamaga Soko, early exponent of the Way of the Warrior.
This volume consists of translations from Japanese sources, made especially for this work, or taken from other published sources, as well as extensive introductory essays and commentary to assist the reader in understanding their historical setting and significance.
