Early modern Japan by Conrad D Totman( )

28 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,473 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( )

14 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 1,943 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
The green archipelago : forestry in preindustrial Japan by Conrad D Totman( )

28 editions published between 1989 and 1998 in English and Japanese and held by 1,623 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
Pre-industrial Korea and Japan in environmental perspective by Conrad D Totman( )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,586 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

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

18 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 1,117 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
Japan's imperial forest, Goryōrin, 1889-1945 : with a supporting study of the kan/min division of woodland in early Meiji Japan, 1871-76 by Conrad D Totman( )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 the whims of future political and economic change. The solution was the goryorin, or imperial forests. Properly husbanded, resourced and utilized, they would provide an assured and predictable income. Accordingly, calculations were made on the size, character and content of the forests that would be required to achieve the targets set. Over time, however, the acquired land generated controversy within the framework of law and other imperatives, and was finally abandoned by the Occupation authorities because of the political ideaology that was its purpose in the first place. 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."--pub. description

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

14 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the outset, society in Japan has been shaped by its environmental context. The lush green mountainous archipelago of today, with its highly productive lowlands, supports a population of more than 127 million people and one of the most advanced economies in the world. How has this come about and at what environmental cost? Conrad Totman, one of the world's foremost scholars on Japanese, here provides a comprehensive and detailed account of the country's environmental history, from its beginnings to the present day. Professor Totman traces the country's development through successive historical phases, as early agricultural society based on non-intensive forms of cultivation gave way to more intensified forms. With each stage came greater utilisation of natural resources but a steady reduction in the richness of the indigenous biosystem. By the late seventeenth century the country was well on the way to ecological disaster
