The classic study of seventeenth-century Japan.

Description

"The single most important study of seventeenth-century thought in Japan to appear in any Western language, and quite possibly in any language."
--Peter Nosco, Harvard Journal of Asiatic Studies
 
"Ooms has produced a work impressive in its erudition, depth of scholarship, and theoretical exegesis. . . . Henceforth, no one can discuss Tokugawa thought or history without taking into account this provocative and challenging work."
--Mikiso Hane, American Historical Review
 
"A major achievement in either English or Japanese on early Tokugawa intellectual history. Ooms depicts from various perspectives the intellectual circumstances relating to Tokugawa rule by citing examples from Confucian, Buddhist, and tento¯ philosophy. It deserves the attention of those who are interested in political ideology, intellectual history, and Japanese culture."
?--Hiroshi Watanabe, Journal of Asian Studies
