Product description

The Edo period in Japan witnessed the iron-fisted rule of some of history's most infamous shoguns, beginning with Tokugawa Ieyasu. In his remarkable campaign to take control of Japan, Ieyasu instigated harsh new laws that forced the daimyo (feudal lords) to live part-time in Edo, restricting their movement and draining their coffers, which ensured they could pose no threat of insurrection. Ieyasu also imposed severe limitations on the weaponry available to the chonin (commoners), effectively preventing them from starting uprisings of their own. In order to enforce the new laws and to maintain order among the growing population of Edo (new Tokyo), the Tokugawa shogunate employed a large number of law enforcement officials - from the noble-caste Samurai warriors to the criminals turned spies known as okappiki, and everyone in between.
in this fascinating story of samurai-era "police procedure," Don Cunningham paints a colourful picture of life during the oppressive Edo period, and the measures taken (and weapons used) to uphold the law. With illustrations, historical photographs, and reproductions of paintings of the era, Taiho-Jutsu: Law and Order in the Age of the Samurai provides the reader with the most complete and accurate impression of law enforcement and the "arresting arts" during the samurai era.

The book is in remarkably good condition, with only extremely minor creases to the edge of the cover jacket, with all of the pages and illustrations being of excellent quality.
