    I read the first essay of this book about the British SamuraiReally liked itBut 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 historyanthropology 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 detailed and where necessary 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

    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 about the context around the novel Quite dry reading as it is all academic though

    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

    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
