    Inhaltsangabe

    Japan's extraordinary culture is like no other in the world, and it remains mysterious to many of us. And that's unfortunate, because to truly understand Japan's influence on the world stage, one needs to understand Japan's culture - on its own terms.

    In an exciting partnership with the Smithsonian, The Great Courses presents these 24 lectures that offer an unforgettable tour of Japanese life and culture. Professor Ravina, with the expert collaboration of the Smithsonian's historians, brings you a grand portrait of Japan.

    From the dawn of Confucianism and the Meiji Restoration to World War II and the economic miracle years of 1955 to 1975, you'll explore landmark periods of Japanese history and learn how broad events and movements introduced, innovated, and revised everything from spirituality to popular entertainment. Along the way you'll get revealing insights into Shinto (Japan's indigenous religion), the art of Katsushika Hokusai, literary works like The Tale of Genji and the haiku of Basho, the everyday lives of samurai, the universal appeal of filmmakers like Akira Kurosawa, foods like yakitori and tempura, and so much more.

    You'll come away from Professor Ravina's final lecture with a stronger sense of the very soul of this one-of-a-kind nation.

    Comprehensive course on JP culture and history

    As the title suggests this course covers japanese history and culture. I have to stress that Dr. Ravina and The Great Courses did an outstanding job. The course is well organized and I found Dr. Ravina has a calm yet gripping voice. As a person with an intermediate knowledge in japanese language and history I thorougly enjoyed listening to the 24 chapters. Even for topics that I thought I knew well, Dr. Ravina was able to provide further information and oftentimes also an interesting (and to me unbeknown) perspective. Can highly recommend it for those interested in better understanding past and present Japan and most importantly its people. In my opinion a must listen for beginners and intermediates alike.

    Wonderful lectures.

    I want to especially applaud the author for his covering of the most modern history of Japan in detail that is often not found in this type of historical introductions.
