    I read the first essay of this book about the British Samurai.
    Really liked it.

    But here's the thing, I understand why this book can be called a dry read. It is totally academic in nature and the target audience was supposed to be history/anthropology teachers and students. I'd say this is an interesting book regardless of whether you fit in the demograph or not.

    Just an advice. Don't read it immediately after Shogun. Take a break before jumping in as the contrast in the language is too evident that way.

    I'll return to complete this book at some later date and edit this review.

    A useful and interesting collection of essays, but difficult to recommend, as it's based on an existing novel; so someone unfamiliar with James Clavell's Shogun is not likely to take much from it. Its aim is briefly to confirm, clarify or correct certain details of the novel. In those things, it succeeds, painting a slightly more detailed (and where necessary, more correct) picture of things like:
    - Will Adams in history and legend
    - death and karma for the samurai class
    - women, courtly love and prostitution
    - trade between Japan and other countries
    - religion, diet and other details of daily life

    It can only really be recommended to fans of Shogun, but they'll certainly find value in it.

    A collection of articles which try to link various themes from Clavell's Shogun with historical Japan and England of the time. Interesting, although sometimes dry reading.

  4. says:

    Academic writings to demystify Shogun by James Clavell. So much of facts and insights about Japan, England and the world in 1600s to make people understand more about the context around the novel. Quite dry reading as it is all academic though.

  5. says:

    120520: years (decades...) since read, this certainly makes me interested in reading it again- all 1 200 pages! rare that a litcrit book inspires that fascination...

  6. says:

    A group of short history articles of Japan using James Clavell’s Shogun as a way of expounding upon different aspects of Japanese History and culture from the way it makes war to the way it treats sexuality. Actually not a bad way to learn a bit about the history of Japan with as little commitment as possible. It helps to have read Shogun but its not required by any means.
