About the Author

Romulus Hillsborough lived in Tokyo for sixteen years, immersing himself in the study of Japanese language, history and culture. Hillsborough's books include Ryoma: Life of a Renaissance Samurai and Shinsengumi: The Shogun's Last Samurai Corps. He lives with his wife, Minako, and son, Matthew, in San Francisco.


"Hillsborough deserves high praise for successfully combining high drama...with meticulous scholarship." -The Daily Yomiuri "Hillsborough...has done a masterful job of bringing a chaotic period to life." -Booklist "With his easily readable and entertaining style, Hillsborough does a great job of elucidating the complex customs that ruled Edo Period life and politics." -The Japan Times "This is a fascinating study of a fascinating period, when an ancient culture was forced to come to terms with the modern world and almost uniquely managed to achieve a rapid transformation..." "Hillsborough's prose is cinematic and intense." -The Wargamer blog "This fine book is one of only a small number of books in the English language that gives a true and authentic account of Japanese history." -Tsutomu Ohshima, Chief Instructor, Shotokan Karate of America "We found it to be not only an excellent biography of Katsu, but an exceedingly well-done, intricate, and clearly written overview of this vital period of Japanese history." -Samurai Archives blog "...Samurai Revolution serves as a compelling and timely warning for America today. Hillsborough astutely captures the serious consequences of self-imposed isolation, xenophobia and failure to adapt to the changing world." -Major Christopher J. Heatherly, Armchair General magazine
