Charles Dunn's research into Kabuki and puppet drama at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, brought him into contact with various aspects of traditional Japan.
Everyday Life in Traditional Japanby Charles J. Dunn, Laurence Broderick
In this remarkable book, the author paints a vivid portrait of Tokugawa Japan when, under control of the shogun, the daily life of different classes consolidated the traditions that shaped modern Japan. Authentic samurai, farmers, craftsmen, merchants, courtiers, priests, actors, and outcasts come to life in this magnificently illustrated portrait of a colorful society.
