"Indispensable. . . . Beginning with the reunification of the country in the mid-16th century and continuing to the final disintegration of the Tokugawa order in the second half of the 19th century, Totman reviews all the major elements of Japanese historical development, offering a tremendous wealth of information in language that is clear, concise, and easy to comprehend."--C. L. Yates, "Choice"
