. Berkeley, Calif.: Center for Japanese Studies, Institute of East Asian Studies, University of California.
This monograph examines population in regard to social conflict and political protest in a preindustrial agrarian society: Japan under the rule of the Tokugawa shoguns. The dimensions of population under consideration are absolute size, density, pressure (on the food supply), distribution, and crisis (resulting from natural calamity).
