Item description for Japonius Tyrannus: The Japanese Warlord Oda Nobunaga Reconsidered (Japonica Neerlandica) by Jeroen Lamers, Patrick Fanning, Carole Honeychurch, Catharine Sutker, Carlos Hahn, Gary Hallgren, Becky Freeman & B. Teissier...
Oda Nobunaga (1534-82) is one of the best-known figures in Japanese history. However, no standard biography existed on this warlord who was the prime mover behind Japan's military and political unification in the late 16th century. Japonius Tyrannus fills the gap in our knowledge about Nobunaga. Dr. Lamers' thorough research presents us with a solid and richly detailed analysis of Nobunaga's political and military career.

Reviews - What do customers think about Japonius Tyrannus: The Japanese Warlord Oda Nobunaga Reconsidered (Japonica Neerlandica)?
Great read. Not biased one way or the other. Mar 16, 2008
About the only English source you will find on Nobunaga. At $100 recommended for the serious historians only. Covers his early life (very well documented) til death. Excellent read. Started out as a disertaion defending his activities that have been classified as "barbaric" by many historians.
A good biography Jun 9, 2005
This is a good biography of one of the most fascinating individuals in world history. The book is a look at Nobunaga's life from beginning to end, but the majority of the text is focused on his quest for ultimate power in Japan. The author gives a comprehensive view of Nobunaga's reign, covering cultural aspects as well as the obvious military and political developments. Although it can be rather dry at some times, the style this book is written in provides an easy read.
Everything you want to know about Oda Nobunaga. Jun 26, 2002
If you're a student of Asian history or Japanese studies, you might consider reading this book. It's easy to read and I think it's a very complete description of the life of Oda Nobunaga and his deeds.
