9780521884907: The Archaeology of Japan: From the Earliest Rice Farming Villages to the Rise of the State (Cambridge World Archaeology)

This is the first book-length study of the Yayoi and Kofun periods of Japan (c. 600 BC - 700 AD), in which the introduction of rice paddy-field farming from the Korean peninsula ignited the rapid development of social complexity and hierarchy that culminated with the formation of the ancient Japanese state. The author traces the historical trajectory of the Yayoi and Kofun periods by employing cutting-edge sociological, anthropological, and archaeological theories and methods. The book reveals a fascinating process through which sophisticated hunting-gathering communities in an archipelago on the eastern fringe of the Eurasian continent were transformed materially and symbolically into a state.

Book Description:

This is the first book-length study of the Yayoi and Kofun periods of Japan (c. 600 BC - 700 AD), in which the beginning of rice paddy-field farming ignited the rapid development of social complexity and hierarchy that culminated with the formation of the ancient state. It reveals a fascinating process through which sophisticated hunting-gathering communities were transformed materially and symbolically into a state. This is a must-read for anyone interested in Japanese and East Asian history and archaeology, state formation, the history of archaeology, and archaeological theory.

About the Author:

Dr Koji Mizoguchi is Professor of Social Archaeology at the Graduate School of Social and Cultural Studies, Kyushu University, Japan. He is the author of An Archaeological History of Japan: 30,000 BC to AD 700 (2002) and Archaeology, Society and Identity in Modern Japan (Cambridge University Press, 2006). Dr Mizoguchi is regarded as a leading Japanese archaeologist, particularly in the study of the Yayoi period and mortuary archaeology. His many contributions to scholarly journals focus on the postcolonial archaeologies of East Asia with special emphasis on Japan, the relationship between modernization and the disciplinization of archaeology, and the study of the centralization and hierarchization of social relations by using formal network analysis methods.
