Synopsis: Book by Pearson, Richard J.

From Library Journal: This book, the catalog for a major exhibition of early Japanese cultures organized by the Smithsonian Institution's Sackler Gallery, presents to U.S. readers an important collection of objects from Japanese museums. The text, written by Richard Pearson and 14 Japanese scholars, is distinctly anthropological and archaeological in nature, which should not diminish the value of the text to art historians and to those generally interested in Japanese culture. The book provides concise overviews of current anthropological knowledge of the social, political, and cultural attributes, as well as detailed discussions of the material culture (especially pottery), characterizing the Paleolithic, Jo mon, Yayoi, Kofun, and Asuka periods. In addition, there are archaeological reports on specific prominent sites and large-format photographs with extensive catalog entries. This catalog should prove a seminal source on this topic for a long time. Highly recommended for libraries with an interest in Japanese culture, art, or archaeology.
