Reading The ""Treatise On The People Of Wa"" In The Chronicle Of The Kingdom Of Wei
The World'S Earliest Written Text On Japan
Sobre o livro
The Treatise on the People of Wa is the oldest written text that we have about that place now known as Japan. Saeki Arikiyo takes a straightforward philological approach to the text, analysing it character by character in comparison to countless other early texts in an effort to explain the meaning of the text in its time.
