A Traveller's History of Japan
The Traveller's History series is designed for travellers who want more historical background on the country they are visiting than can be found in a tour guide. Each volume offers a complete and authoritative history of the country from the earliest times up to the present day. A Gazetteer cross-referenced to the main text pinpoints the historical importance of sights and towns.
Illustrated with maps and line drawings, this literate and lively series makes ideal before -you-go reading, and is just as handy tucked into suitcase or backpack.
