About the Author
Marius B. Jansen was Professor of Japanese History at Princeton University. He was the author of Sakamoto Ryoma and the Meiji Restoration.
Jansen, a leading authority in the field, skillfully offers a concise overview of Japan as an integral part of the cultural milieu of Chinese civilization. His masterly prose style adds to the enjoyment of the work.
[China in the Tokugawa World] constitutes the only specific survey in English of the Japanese contacts with, and images of, China from the late 16th to the late 19th century and is written by a scholar who here, not for the first time, proves that he possesses a rare ability to present in a highly accessible style and within a broad historical framework the most interesting findings of recent Japanese and Western research.
