テーマ


Mammas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Samurai

Who wouldn't want to be a samurai? Samurai status was indeed coveted by many people in Tokugawa Japan, but there were also good reasons not to be a warrior. This talk will introduce some of them, and along the way it will also address the surprisingly difficult problem of pinning down the definition of "samurai": who was a "real" samurai, and who was a pretender? This presentation's larger purpose is to consider how the Tokugawa status order maintained its integrity over time.
