Full Description


Social and political life in early modern Japan revolved around three cities: the emperor's city of Kyoto, the shogun's city of Edo and the commercial centre of Osaka. This volume explores the "merchants' capital", Osaka, during the Tokugawa era from 1600 to 1800. The contributors explore topics including the early growth and development of the city, the geography of wealth and power in the 17th century, political dissidence, the theatre, gang violence, and Osaka's religious and intellectual life.NER(01): GB
