"In a government, military matters are the essential thing," said Japan's "Heavenly Warrior," the Emperor Temmu, in 684. Heavenly Warriors traces in detail the evolutionary development of weaponry, horsemanship, military organization, and tactics from Japan's early conflicts with Korea up to the full-blown system of the samurai. Enhanced by illustrations and maps, and with a new preface by the author, this book will be indispensable for students of military history and Japanese political history.

About the Author:

William Wayne Farris is Professor of History, University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Review:

“Farris advances our understanding of Japan's military enormously.”Journal of Asian Studies

“Wayne Farris's Heavenly Warriors...is a challenging re-interpretation of Japan's early military history and warrior tradition...[It] is both polemical and thought provoking. It is detailed and based on extensive reading of Japanese primary and secondary materials.”Martin Collcutt, Harvard Journal of Asiatic Studies
