About the Author

Beatrice M. Bodart-Bailey is professor of Japanese history and a founding member of the Department of Comparative Culture, Otsuma Women's University, Tokyo.


An unabashedly revisionist study. . . . Using thorough research and novel analysis, the author argues that Tsunayoshi's personality and upbringing (he was raised by his commoner mother) influenced his reign as shogun. . . . This thought-provoking study will be controversial, but cannot be ignored. Highly recommended.-- "CHOICE"
This is a dense, rich study, the result of many years of meticulous research, which will be of great interest to anyone interested in Tokugawa history and culture or political biography. Although the latter has not been much in vogue in Japanese studies of late, it is hoped that scholars will be inspired by this excellent study to tackle some of the other major figures in Tokugawa history.-- "Journal of Japanese Studies"
