This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Civilizations of East Asia - Tokugawa Shoguns of Japan. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
For more than 100 years before the Tokugawa Shogunate took power in Japan in 1603, the country wallowed in lawlessness and chaos during the "Warring States" period in 1467-1573. Beginning in 1568, Japan's "Three Reunifiers”- Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and Tokugawa Ieyasu - worked to bring the warring daimyo back under central control.
In 1603, Tokugawa Ieyasu completed this task and established the Tokugawa Shogunate, which would rule in the emperor's name until 1868. After 250 years of peace and relative isolation under the Tokugawa shoguns, Japan launched itself into the modern world.
With the sorry fate of once-omnipotent China as an example, the island nation threw itself in to developing its economy and military might. It soon grew powerful enough to beat the western imperial powers at their own game in conflicts such as the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-05, and to spread its own empire across much of Asia by 1945.
The presentation covers the following:
Early Tokugawa Shogunate
First Tokugawa Shoguns
Four Tiered Class Structure
Beginning of the End
Fall of the Tokugawas
Japan Enters the Modern World
