Description
"Through his description of one historical event in Japan's national experience, Noel Perrin has written a book as tight and elegant as haiku. The story is a fascinating one: Japan's introduction to, mastery of, and subsequent abandonment of, the gun.... Perrin's work is so crisp and interesting, and so loaded with background information and revealing anecdotes, that the whole peculiar episode it describes jumps to life from its pages."—New Republic

"A fascinating story, one which has long been inaccessible to the West. Giving Up the Gun, written for general readership, is thoroughly enjoyable—filled with marvelous anecdotes and illustrations."—Washington Post Book World
