Japan before Perry : a short history by Conrad D Totman( Book )

17 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By 1853 Japan had been transformed from a sparsely populated land of nonliterate tribal peoples into an elaborately structured commercial society sustaining massive cities and a varied array of sophisticated cultural production. In this authoritative survey, Conrad Totman examines the origins of Japanese civilization and explores in detail the classical, medieval, and early-modern epochs, weaving interpretations of the major themes in Japan's cultural and political development into a rich historical narrative."--Back cover

The green archipelago : forestry in preindustrial Japan by Conrad D Totman( Book )

27 editions published between 1989 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Totman raises the critical question of how Japan's steeply mountainous woodland has remained biologically healthy despite centuries of intensive exploitation by a dense human population that has always been dependent on wood and other forest products. Mindful that in global terms this has been a rare outcome, and one that bears directly on Japan's recent experience as an affluent, industrial society, Totman examines the causes, forms, and effects of forest use and management in Japan during the millennium to 1870. He focuses mainly on the centuries after 1600 when the Japanese found themselves driven by their own excesses into programs of woodland protection and regenerative forestry

The lumber industry in early modern Japan by Conrad D Totman( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This concise volume surveys three hundred years in the history of the lumber industry in early modern (Tokugawa) Japan. In earlier works, Conrad Totman examined environmental aspects of Japan's early modern forest history; here he guides readers through the inner workings of lumber provision for urban construction, providing a wealth of detail on commercial and technological systems of provision while focusing on the convoluted commercial arrangements that moved timber from forest to city despite exceptionally severe environmental and financial obstacles
Japan : an environmental history by Conrad D Totman( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yet Japan's isolation in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries led to an unusually enlightened set of environmental policies, and the system of regenerative forestry brought in during the Tokugawa period prevented certain devastation of the country's forests. At the end of the nineteenth century, however, the country began to go to the opposite extreme, as industrialisation brought with it a period of unprecedented change. Growth and diversification led to a surge in environmental pollution as it became necessary to look beyond the country's domestic natural resources to meet the demand for foodstuffs, fossil fuels and the raw materials necessary to an advanced industrial economy. The population was particularly badly affected, and some of the problems that emerged, especially from the 1960s onwards, provided important test cases not just for Japan but worldwide. What makes the Japanese story particularly instructive is that the country's boundaries are uncommonly clear and the nature, timing, and extent of external influences on its history are unusually identifiable
Japan's imperial forest, Goryōrin, 1889-1946 : with a supporting study of the Kan/Min division of woodland in early Meiji Japan, 1871-76 by Conrad D Totman( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first study of its kind to trace the history of what was to become one of Japan's major resources and a model of conservation and forestry management. Central to the planning of the Meiji reformers was securing the long-term financial stability of the Imperial household that would not leave it exposed to future political and economic change
