Their contributions explore such subjects as the early growth and development of the city, the geography of wealth and power in the seventeenth century, political dissidence, the theater, gang violence, and Osakas religious and intellectual life.

One of the first books to focus on a city other than Edo during the Tokugawa era, this work extends our understanding of Japanese urban life during that period. Portraying Osaka as a regional center of government, vibrant economic life, and high and low culture, the book reveals much about the citys distinctiveness and development.
