Early modern Japan by Conrad D Totman( )

25 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thoughtfully organized survey of Japan's early modern period (1568-1868) is a remarkable blend of political, economic, intellectual, literary, and cultural history. The only truly comprehensive study in English of the Tokugawa period, it also introduces a new ecological perspective, covering natural disasters, resource use, demographics, and river control
The lumber industry in early modern Japan by Conrad D Totman( )

13 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 1,841 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
Pre-industrial Korea and Japan in environmental perspective by Conrad D Totman( )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking the history of Japan and Korea and their environmental interactions from late Pleistocene down to about 1870 A.D., the author makes a convincing case for viewing the two countries together, as a history, particularly when looking at their pre-industrial experiences. Drawing from a rare combination of knowledge of both countries, Conrad Totman reveals the extent of shared timing, substance, and dynamics in the political, social, and economic development of the two countries, and in their relationship to the ecosystem. With extensive bibliography, chronology, glossary, maps and graphs."--Jacket
The green archipelago : forestry in preindustrial Japan by Conrad D Totman( )

26 editions published between 1989 and 1998 in English and Japanese and held by 1,470 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
Japan before Perry : a short history by Conrad D Totman( Book )

18 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,122 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

8 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 458 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.

Japan : an environmental history by Conrad D Totman( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lush green mountainous archipelago of today supports a population of over 127 million people and one of the most advanced economies in the world. How has this come about? At what environmental cost? Conrad Totman, one of the world's foremost scholars on Japan, here provides a comprehensive and detailed account of the country's environmental history, from its beginnings to the present day. 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. The Japanese experience, therefore, not only yields important insights into the processes of environmental history, it offers important lessons for the wider environmental history of the planet

Anthony Campano Papers by Anthony Campano( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The letters of Tony Campano to Shizuko Shirai during the year or more they were separated document their unlikely romance. Soon after Tony returned home when his first enlistment ended, friends and family tried to discourage him from pursuing a relationship with Shizuko. Despite their age difference--Shizuko was eleven years older-- and the language barrier, the two ultimately married. In addition to the couple's long-distance courtship letters, the collection also contains about 100 letters exchanged between Campano and Conrad Totman, dating from their early days in the U.S. Army to the present; taken together they document a friendship of more than fifty years
