Excerpt

It has been a privilege to work with Mr. Kondo's scholarly and enlightening text. In reading it, I found myself wondering how he managed to put so much information in such a tiny space. Unfortunately, I found that I was unable to match him in this respect. He was writing for Japanese readers, and since one of the main purposes of this series is to reach Westerners who do not possess as detailed knowledge of Japan, I found it necessary to amplify and abbreviate considerably. Mr. Kondo, of course, is not responsible for my changes.

Old Japanese names are given in the Japanese style-- surname first--and modern names in the Western style.
