The Establishment of Economic Society and the Edo Period
As stated in the previous chapter, the government established by quelling the anarchy of the sixteenth century had its foundations in regions where small-scale management in agriculture had already spread with the permeation of economic society and increases in production were becoming a reality; it was premised on the progression of the separation of warriors and farmers, as well as warriors, merchants, and artisans residing in urban areas. In the advanced regions in Kinai and its surrounding areas, the fact that the economic society that formed took precedence, and seizing control of such areas was by no means the same as seizing control of other areas which had not experienced the change toward economic society yet.
