Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on one political actor, Kudō Heisuke, his network, and the significance of his network in shogunal politics. It is a preliminary analysis of what can be learnt about shogunal policies and political economy when the brief encounters of political decision-makers is considered. Market interventions, domestic as well as foreign, had arguably been Tanuma Okitsugu's most effective means for ensuring greater political power for the shogunate for quite some time prior to the 1780s. Recent discussion has focused mainly on domains, and the shogunate is commonly seen as reacting belatedly to the ideological transformation of political economy.
