A Chronicle of Gods and Sovereigns (Translations from the Oriental Classics)
Hardcover book from 1980, being one of the most influential works of Japanese history and political theory. With its glorification of Japan's system of imperial succession, the author's 14th century tract became the catechism of loyalty to the throne for generations of Japanese. Beginning with recounting of Japan's divine origins, it tells of the early deities who ruled before heaven and earth were separated. Then the lives of the human sovereigns are chronicled who ruled over Japan in the 21 centuries following the founding of the empire in the year 606 BC.This first complete English translation of this landmark work gives an extensive introduction placing the chronicle in the context of 14-th century Japan and exploring its powerful legacy of Japan before the Tokugawa period.
