This is undoubtedly the best and most complete work about Japanese history.
I was very happy to find this book trilogy as it was very hard to find elsewhere.
This is a true masterpiece and I recommand it to anyone who is serious in discovering Japans roots.
You will never find a more complete work than this trilogy of George Sansom.

HASH(0x8f61fac8) von 5 Sternen III. Edo to Meiji. . . and then? 5. Juni 2005
Von Robert E. Morrell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Again, it is probably well to point out that Sansom's 3-vol. narrative history of Japan is sometimes confused with several of his other works, and that, for all practical purposes, these three constitute the standard narrative history of Japan of our time. . . Of course, these "other works" are of the same high caliber and well worth our attention: Japan: A Short Cultural History (1931; Revised Edition, 1943); and especially, The Western World and Japan: A Study in the Interaction of European and Asiatic Cultures (1965; 504, xi pp). The author is identified in both books as "G.B. Sansom." [Not a very exciting distinction, to be sure, but online computers sometimes get confused.]

George Sansom (1883-1965) is variously identified on Amazon.com and elsewhere as George Sansom, G. Sansom, George Bailey Sansom, G. B. Sansom, George B. Sansom, and Sir George Sansom (yes, he was knighted in 1935 and again in 1947). The 3-vol. set is signed "George Sansom".

This third volume of the series stops at 1867. Sansom's stated reason for not continuing his history beyond this year is that he had lived too close to events of the Meiji Restoration (1868) for him to develop a perspective that only distance could supply. For readers interested in later events, The Making of Modern Japan (2000; 2002), by Marius B. Jansen, another outstanding scholar of Japanese history, would be a good choice. Since this history begins at 1600, there are overlapping accounts of the Edo period, but from two quite different perspectives.

In short, this set is a good buy and is likely to remain the standard narrative history of Japan for the foreseeable future.

HASH(0x8f61fb1c) von 5 Sternen Best affordable introduction to Japanese history 19. Juli 2001
Von Barbara Nostrand - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Pretty much every English speaker who studies Japan acquires a copy of Sansom. Consequently, if you are interested in Japan, you probably already have a set. I am giving this collection four stars instead of five simply because its scholarship is now a bit dated and it is not the Cambridge History of Japan. But, who can afford the Cambridge History? I wish I could. In terms of being affordable, this is most likely still the best introduction to Japanese history around in English.

HASH(0x8f61ff54) von 5 Sternen One of the Most Exhaustive and Informative Works on the Subject: Volume III 14. Mai 2007
Von mroxie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
After I had finished reading George Sansom's "A History of Japan to 1334" and "A History of Japan: 1334-1615", I was definitely looking forward to reading this book, the final volume of his history series, since 1615-1867 is the time period of Japan's history that I have often been most interested in reading about. This major subjects of the time period covered in this volume include: the rule of the Tokugawa shoguns and the establishment of their government, feudal society (class distinctions and social hierarchy), Japan's exclusion policy (decrees issued in 1633, 1635, and 1639, which caused Japan to become almost entirely isolated from other countries), the persecution of Christians in Japan, the influence of Confucianism on politics and people in Japan, and the arrival of Commodore Perry in 1853.

The only complaint I have about this book is its brief treatment of the cultural aspects of the Genroku period (1688-1704), which is a time frame that many readers are bound to be curious about, since it encompassed the growth of the ukiyo-e art style and the flourishing of literature (such as haiku, with Matuso Basho). G.B. Sansom's "Japan: A Short Cultural History" expands upon the Genroku period in greater detail in one of its chapters, and serves as a good companion to Sansom's "A History of Japan" series in general.

HASH(0x8f62433c) von 5 Sternen Excellent text 18. Dezember 2004
Von Andrew Urquhart - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
An excellent text on the pre-modern Edo-period of Japanese history, covering the events following the battle of Sekigahara, and the establishment of the Bakufu government in Edo (now Tokyo), up to the opening up of Japan by Commodore Perry, and the Meiji Restoration in 1867.

Excellent book for the serious student of Japanese history, covering salient aspects of everyday life during the period of national isolation, eg. Art and Culture, the Government, the growth of cities etc.

Also recommended for those with an interest in how Japan laid the foundations for becoming a global superpower, and how the Samurai lost their grip on feudal power to the (technically far inferior) mercantile class.

Not as fine as the Cambridge History of Japan, but for those more interested specifically in the Edo period, this is a must-have text, if a little old-fashioned.

HASH(0x8f624420) von 5 Sternen The Third in an Excellent Compilation of History 4. Januar 2006
Von presypclhs - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
George Sansom follows his previous work with this, "A History of Japan, 1615-1867" which chronicles the rise of the Tokugawa Shogunate, the engrandeurment of Edo (Tokyo) and goes up to the Meiji Restoration (1868). This book is an excellent resource for any college student studying the Japanese culture as well as anyone with even a casual interest in the time period.

Sansom's history is by no means a boring recitation of dates and names. He tells stories, and does so with the expertise of a good writer. Sansom makes history interesting aswell as highly informative and very readable.

It is not essential to read "A History of Japan to 1334" and "A History of Japan, 1334-1615" to understand Sansom's work, however it does help. Sansom never looks back unless he absolutely has to, so the first time reader of his work may be a little confused as to who some of the major characters are, whats going on in Tokugawa's rebellion and some of the groundwork that led to it.
