Acerca de


The book's strength lies in the fascinating collection of media featuring the Christian figures, and in Suter's analyses of the significance of those figures' evolving gender and cultural ambiguity. . . . the book succeeds in offering an invaluable study of the ways in which the Christian figures of the Tokugawa period are used by modern authors to reflect and also affect the discourse of their times.-- "Asian Studies Review" This is a wide-ranging, satisfying, and enlightening book which does rather more than a biography of Ieyasu would have done. Ieyasu emerges from it not so much as a human being, for his inner life is impossible to reconstruct, but as rather more than a successful warrior and strategist. The norms of behavior, accumulation, and sociability that governed his actions are skillfully and painstakingly laid bare in Pitelka's book and it is a pleasure to read.-- "Journal of Japanese Studies" Pitelka straddles the disciplines of art history and history, and what makes his account interesting is that the collections he studied included most prominently cherished objects linked to tea ceremonies, known as "famous objects" (meibutsu), which were gifted, recovered from ruined castles, and restored. . . . Pitelka has crafted a well-researched and well-written study of the "agency of objects." This insightful study should be of interest to scholars and students of Japanese history, literature, and art.-- "American Historical Review" In "Spectacular Accumulation" Morgan Pitelka relates the thrilling interactions between three"unifiers" of Japan in the tumultuous decades of the late 16th century and early 17th century. This trioof warlords includes the bloodthirsty Oda Nobunaga, the vainglorious Toyotomi Hideyoshi andTokugawa Ieyasu who triumphed at the blood-soaked 1615 siege of Osaka Castle.-- "Japan Times"
