Sources of Japanese Tradition is a handy and comprehensive reference for scholars and students, and an engaging introduction for general readers. Now in its second edition, this volume maintains a wide selection of source readings on history, society, politics, education, philosophy and religion in the land of the rising sun. The editors have restructured Volume 1 to span the period from the early Japanese chronicles to the end of the 16th century, revised or retranslated most of the texts included in the original 1958 edition, and added a great many t included or translated before. New additions include: new readings on early and medieval Shinto and on the tea ceremony; new readings on State Buddhism and Chinese political thought influential in Japan; and new sections on women's education, medieval invations in the uses of history, and laws and precepts of the medieval warrior houses. Together, the selections shed light on the development of Japanese civilization in its own terms, without reference to Western parallels, and will help generations of students and lay readers understand how leading intellectuals in Japan have looked at life, the traditions of their ancestors, and the world in which they lived.
