Chapter Summary

This chronology presents a selective summary of historical events mentioned in the Nihon Shoki and (to a lesser extent) the Shoku Nihongi that are relevant to the arguments in the book Man'yōshū and the Imperial Imagination in Early Japan. Its purpose is to serve as a guideline or roadmap for the reader. The section emphasizes that, particularly in the case of the Nihon Shoki, this is a chronology of events as they are represented in the text. The chronology can be read as a minimalist historical account of the period from the mid-seventh to the early eighth century.

Keywords: Early Japan; Man'yōshū Nihon Shoki; Shoku Nihongi
