This is a wonderful book on Japanese history. It is definitely an overview of Japanese history, but it is thorough nonetheless. I use the handy timeline and list of emperors in the back for when I read books like the tale of Genji, when you need to be reminded of the era and who was in power. I definately would recommend this for any Asian history buffs as a quick reference on Japanese history!
