The Flight of a Sparrow
This introductory chapter outlines the three goals of the book and situates its contribution against existing scholarship. The Chaos and Cosmos of Kurosawa Tokiko offers a fresh perspective on what it meant to be a woman and a political activist in the late Tokugawa period; it enriches our understanding of ideology and society in nineteenth-century Japan by blurring the line between rational and irrational; and nuances our understanding of Japan’s transition into the modern era by illuminating simultaneously the well-known historical moments and the microcosm of the single individual.
