I liked it, but I wrote it so readers beware of this review!
Catherine Fitzsimmons
I don’t normally read nonfiction, but I came across this title when I was trying to find a good resource on the topic some few weeks ago and ordered it in to my local library. As the title suggests, it’s a general guide to the various aspects of life in Japan from 1185-1868, commonly known as the Medieval and early modern periods.

I found this to be a very useful resource with great information on the subject. It’s more or less an introduction to the topic, without going overly into detail regard

Recommends it for: Students and scholars of Japanese history
Shelves: reference
A handy reference book, ideal for library. It is organized thematically. Think "mini-encyclopedia" plus who's who in medieval and early modern Japan. Some decent scholarly wrap up on Bushido part.
