- KurzbeschreibungJapan's master narrative of national homogeneity <br>tends to deny the existence of Ainu people as an <br>ethnic minority group. Today many people think <br>Hokkaido island has been an integral part of Japan <br>since ancient times, but before the modern notion of <br>boundaries emerged, Ezochi (present-day Hokkaido), <br>or Ainu land, was considered to be foreign barbarian <br>territoy outside Japan. This book explores <br>historically the northern frontier of the Japanese <br>state in the pre-Meiji times and looks at the <br>process how the China-centered worldview was <br>replaced by the modern notion of boundaries in late <br>Tokugawa Japan. Focus is placed on the Tokugawa <br>intellectuals' perceptions of Ezochi and the <br>northern boundaries, as the author believes the <br>changing notions of borders became the driving force <br>behind the incorporation of Ainu land into inner <br>Japan. This book also examines the social, economic,<br>and external conditions surrounding Ezochi at the <br>time, which turned the Tokugawa elite's attention to <br>the northern island. Thus, this book provides <br>insightful and useful information for students and <br>scholars who are interested in the Ainu and Japanese <br>history.
