Richard D. (dunhamrc) reviewed The Last Samurai : The Life and Battles of Saigo Takamori on
Thorough and well-researched biography. Following the life of one influential man, it gives a good perspective of very turbulent and complicated time of Japanese history - the fall of the shogunate and the Meiji Restoration. Saigo's life provides a narrative to which you can relate all the other events.
