Jeffrey P. Mass (au). This collection of essays by Jeffrey P. Mass, Ichihashi Prof. of History at Stanford Univ., is built around a major but previously unstudied theme in Japanese history -- the extent to which the exaggeration of antiquity has distorted historical understanding. Mass takes stock of the field of medieval Japanese history, a field he is largely responsible for creating in its present form. Chapters: The Scholarship of John Whitney Hall: A Personal View; The Mixing of Past & Present: Anachronism in Japanese History; Yoritomo & Feudalism; Identity, Personal Names, & Kamakura Society; Documents, Translation, & History; Black Holes in Japanese History: The Case of Kamakura; & Changing Western Views of Kamakura History.
