Warfare in early medieval Japan was intimately linked to social structure.Examining the causes and conduct of military operations informs and enhancesour understanding of the tenth to fourteenth centuries – the formative age of thesamurai.Karl Friday, an internationally recognized authority on Japanese warriors,provides the first comprehensive study of the topic in English. This workincorporates nearly twenty years of ongoing research, drawing on both newreadings of primary sources and the most recent secondary scholarship. It over -turns many of the stereotypes that have dominated views of the period.Friday analyzes Heian-, Kamakura- and Nambokuch
-period warfare fromfive thematic angles. He examines the principles that justified armed conflict, themechanisms used to raise and deploy armed forces, the weapons available to earlymedieval warriors, the means by which they obtained them, and the techniquesand customs of battle.A thorough, accessible and informative review, this study highlights thecomplex causal relationships among the structures and sources of early medievalpolitical power, technology and the conduct of war.
