Carefully researched and with copious rare illustrations, Screechs edited version of Titsighs original writings offers plenty of interesting snap-shots of life in the Edo Period.


Titsinghs narrative is useful in that he never sees Japan as a monolithic and static society where everybody thought the same way. Instead, he is constantly aware of the competing groups and interests that make up any complex society, in particular drawing a distinction between those who favored more ties with the outside world and those who didnt, described as frogs in a well because of their limited horizons. The widely traveled Titsingh was quite the opposite. - Metropolis


Carefully researched and with copious rare illustrations, Screechs edited version of Titsighs original writings offers plenty of interesting snap-shots of life in the Edo Period - as seen through Dutch eyes. - Kansai Time Out


Screech has done a great service...this is a facinating and richly rewarding account of the Japan that impinged upon the senses and intellect of a well-educated European with the curiosity to take an informed interest in his surroundings. - Asian Affairs


Screechs choice of illustrations demonstrates his intimate knowledge of source materials in Japan...Because they [Japan Extolled and Decried and Secret Memoirs of the Shoguns] focus on different topics and ways of interacting with Japan, both books should be read together...Neither book alone will be sufficent for carrying out research on Thunberg or Titsingh, but thanks to the expertise of the editor, those doing such research will want to read both books. After many years of nerve-racking critical editing, I found Screechs presentation most refreshing and educating. These books will deserve a place on our shelves. - Itinerario, 30:3 (2006)


Professor Screech has performed a valuable service for students of Tokugawa Japan and of contacts between the West and Japan by resurrecting Titsinghs writings from obscurity. - The Japan Society
