Japan Before Perry by Conrad Totman Japan Before Perry, Paperback (January 2008)

By 1853 Japan had been transformed from a sparsely populated land of nonliterate tribal peoples into an elaborately structured commercial society sustaining massive cities and a array of sophisticated cultural production.

The Japanese are conscious of the lush green of their homeland, which they refer to as 'the green archipelago'.
