Princess Masako

by Ben Hills, Princess Masako Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Princess Masako books, The tragic true story of Japan's Crown Princess-with a new afterword by the author. It's the fantasy of many young women: marry a handsome prince, move into a luxurious palace, and live happily ever after. But that's not how it turned out for Masako Owada. Ben Hills's fascinating portrait of Princess Masako and the Chrysanthemum Throne draws on research in Tokyo and rural Japan, at Oxford and Harvard, and from more than sixty interviews with Japanese, American, British, and Australian sources-many of whom have never spoken publicly before-shedding light on the royal family's darkest secrets, secrets that can never be openly discussed in Japan because of the reverence in which the emperor and his family are held. But most of all, this is a story about a love affair that went tragically wrong. The paperback edition will contain a new afterword by the author, discussing the impact this book had in Japan, where it was banned.

The Goddesses Of Japan

by Kazuko Nishimura, The Goddesses Of Japan Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Goddesses Of Japan books, The Goddesses of Japan is a history-based book, entirely narrated by unsung heroines - a goddess, a sovereign, a mother, a wife, a warrior, a lover - who enacts in the forefront or moves in the background to influence the fate of the country, changing forever the fabric of its society. The Deities Izanami and Izanagi are appointed the Creators of the New World - the Land of the Rising Sun. A beautiful love relationship develops between them during the Creation phase, but fate sets them apart forever. Their offspring fight for hegemony over the land and Amaterasu, the Sun Goddess emerges victorious. Her descendants become the Rulers of the new world and founds the legendary Yamato Dynasty, in which every sovereign is invested with the Three Sacred Imperial Regalia; an act that makes their prerogative to the Chrysanthemum Throne unique and incontestable. Though, through the ancient times they make alliances with powerful aristocratic families and warrior clans in order to survive treachery and rivalries; with the emergence of the Samurai class, the Imperial House loses grip on state affairs and for almost a century and half, the country is engulfed in brutal civil wars. The sword becomes the law and the strong feeds on the weak in a dynamic interchange of power, where there is always one who is yet stronger than the strong. Stealthy agents called Ninja enter the scene, worsening the situation, yet help the process of reunification of the country. With the introduction of Christianity, the new rulers fear to become a European subject; hence, they isolate the entire nation from the outside world. After more than two centuries of seclusion, the political power is finally restored to the Emperor, who opens the borders, but perhaps it is too late for Japan to recover from its medieval slumbering...
