Summary
"In this remarkable portrait of a complex period in Japanese history, Pierre F. Sonyri uses a wide variety of sources -- ranging from legal and historical texts to artistic and hterary works -- to form a magisterial overview of medieval Japanese society. As much at home discussing the implications of the morality and mentality of The Tale of the Heike as he is describing local disputes among minor vassals or the economic implications of the pirate trade, Souyri brilliantly illustrates the interconnected nature of medieval Japanese culture.
