366 – Review of Just Enough – Part 5

Play

Paul had Abe Coley and Rory Page with him to review Just Enough: Lesson on Living Green from Traditional Japan by Azby Brown.

In this part they discussed big government versus local community, Paul’s take on shogun culture, rice as taxes, peasant revolts, village size, farm manuals, schooling, the plethora of pictures, details of rice cultivation and harvest. The value of swallows, rice fermentation, processing and uses.

The rest of the discussion of this part was about roof thatching. It included: thatching materials used, treatment, laying, fixing, trimming, and ridge styles. At the end of this section they talked about an extensive table of building materials. Abe was struck by the absence of stone.
