Synopsis

This book is organized around a fully annotated translation of daily entries from the year 939 in the Teishinkoki, the journal of Fujiwara Tadahira, an early regent. The translation makes entries from a courtier journal accessible to English readers for the first time. The finished work provides startling insights into the Heian court led by Tadahira during the 930s and 940s, when the regency took established form even as it met challenges from regional rebellions in eastern and western Japan. Note: This book reads from right to left. It is not in error, please do not return your order.
