by Paul Tierney
Tracing the development of Edo's (pre-modern Tokyo)kabuki district,many behind the scenes dramas - amongst shogunate officials vying for power, between the actors and owners of the theatres, between the owners and investors - are revealed in this detailed history. Even in Tokugawa period Japan, government and big business worked hand in hand to protect their own interests.
A World Apart contains the complete story of how and why Saruwaka-cho came to be, much of it for the first time in English.
