This volume, Early Japan, chronicles Japan's great achievements through a very special historical narrative. This is what Mr. Leonard tells with skill and grace, covering the period from Japan's shadowy beginnings as a backward land on the edges of the civilized world, to the time when the pattern of its own cultural greatness had become well set by the early 17th century.

Early Japan is one of twenty-one volumes in the Time-Life Book series Great Ages of Man. This series was published in the 1960s and is an overview of world history. This volume describes Japanese history from around A.D. 500 to 1600.

Author Jonathan Norton Leonard strikes a good balance of cultural, political, military, and religious history. Topics covered include Japanese literature (The Tale of Genji and Tales of the Heike), architecture, the samurai, feudalism, society, Zen Buddhism, and the introduction of Christianity by the Jesuits in the 1500s. Each chapter is supplemented by wonderful picture essays. The picture essay depicting the process of a samurai warrior donning his armor is especially interesting. The book includes several maps, a time line, bibliography, and index.

In summary, Early Japan is a great, easy-to-read introduction to a fascinating and distinctive culture. I used this book while teaching early Japanese history to my seventh grade world history students and found it quite useful. Highly recommended.
