About the Author

LOUIS G. PEREZ is Professor of Japanese History at Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois. He has been a Fulbright Scholar to China and a Visiting Scholar at the Japan Center for Michigan University at Hikone, Japan. He is the author of numerous articles on Japanese history, as well as of The Dalai Lama (1993) and a scholarly monograph on the Japanese foreign minister Mutsu Munemitsu.


?The strength of this book lies above all in its clear and concise treatment of cultural, religious, and intellectual trends. Among the highlights of the work are the author's informed and accessible discussions of Shinto and Buddhism in early Japan, of Neo-Confucianism and its adaption in the Tokugawa period, and of the arts and popular culture in Japan today--the latter of which instructors in introductory college courses might profitably assign. Perez also pays more attention to the history of Japanese women than do most survey writers and incorporates colorful anecdotes from Japanese social history.?-The Journal of Asian Studies
