Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Man'yōshū and the Imperial Imagination in Early Japan contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, a list of figures, conventions and abbreviations. The book examines the literary representation of the Yamato court as an imperial state in the late seventh and early eighth centuries. Like their classical and contemporary exemplars, the Han and Tang dynasties, Yamato courtiers envisioned themselves as inhabiting a central metropolitan capital ruling over an expansive realm containing peoples that exhibited diverse forms of appearance, custom, and speech.

Keywords: classical exemplars; contemporary exemplars; Han dynasty; Tang dynasty; Yamato court
