A Ph.D. dissertation by Dennis Darling

Welcome to www.uesugi.dk, the purpose of which is to make freely available, to anyone interested, my dissertation entitled “Uesugi Kenshin:
a study of the military career of a sixteenth-century warlord.” The dissertation earned me a Ph.D. from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark,
in 2001, but it has never been published in book form.

Absent from the original dissertation, but added to the one available here, is a page of acknowledgements. Apart from that, the two dissertations
are identical, right down to the misspellings, typos and grammatical errors that were undoubtedly overlooked during the original proofreading.
