Hideyoshi Harvard East Asian Monographs. Kaya rated it it was amazing Mar 26, This book is essential in understanding Nobunaga’s interactions with Kyoto, his interaction with vassals, and his projects and works that were used to shape his public image.
About Jeroen Pieter Lamers. First, I felt that the sections tyrsnnus covered to were way too short. Perhaps that is not entirely the author’s fault. It is however, excellent at describing the politics, economics and the japoinus changes Sengoku Japan was going through as well as his strategic challenges.
