Shogunate Japan
800 Years of Military Control and its Influence on the Modern Nation


by Sarah Kemp


Japan’s Shogunate period lasted from 1192 to 1867, with only occasional breaks from military government.


This is the story of Emperors with prestige but little power, and of Shoguns who used political cunning and military force to control the nation. Dedicated soldiers, known as samurai, fought the Shogun’s battles and maintained civil order among the population. This book explores the styles of the many Shoguns until the Meiji Restoration.


Shogunate Japan is the origin of the military tradition that continues to influence Japan today.
