Onna Daigaku, a half-dogmatised precept exclusively intended for women, was written by Kaibara Ekken, the most famous moralist of Japan. It was the most popular of his works and remained so for nearly two centuries. This volume, a reprint of 'Women and Wisdom of Japan', originally published in 1905, includes a translation into English of Onna Daigaku and an evaluation of the effect it had upon the daily lives of Japanese women prior to the opening of Japan during the mid nineteenth century. An invaluable source for those seeking an understanding of the lives and status of Japanese women from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century.
