About This Item

Condition; small wear on spine.
Content: This examination of death rituals in early Japan finds in the practice of double burial a key to understanding the Taika Era, or the 'Era of Great Change' (645-710 ce). Drawing on narratives and poems from the earliest Japanese texts - the 'Kojiki,' a mythology, the 'Nihonshoki,' a historical chronicle, and the 'Man'yoshu,' an anthology of poetry - the author argues that double burial was the center of a manipulation of myth and ritual for specific ideological and factional purposes.

338 pages, notes, glossary of Japanese terms, bibliography, index.
