Ink spot on fore-edge, light wear. Crisp hardcover. ; INSCRIBED on dedication page to Japan Society staffer: "And to Sandy whose warmth and friendship have helped make the possible more enjoyable and the impossible more bearable. Love, Ken". "All the elements that have been mentioned thus far - the social unrest, economic expansion, shogunal ambitions, samurai greed, itinerance, and peasant strivings toward greater autonomy - were parts of a unity. The Muromachi period was blessed with its share of creativity and innovation in its various institutions, but condemned to constant turmoil by an inability to curb the negative consequences of the very liberality that allowed those innovations to take place. In Muromachi Japan the freedom of movement and opportunities for personal advancement by the sword resulted in an anarchy which benefited neither the most gifted nor the most creative, but only the most ruthless." - page 5. ; Harvard East Asian Monographs; Vol. 99; 226 pages; Signed by Author.
