Aug 19, 2012

Most Daimyo were simply trying to survive and maintain their own holdings. By looking at Sengoku Daimyo and Daimyo domains through the lense of International Relations Theory, your hosts contend that the concept of "taking over Japan" may have been one that evolved gradually over the decades, rather than being an actual "goal" of the Sengoku period Daimyo from the start. This episode is part one of two.
