Among the leading specialists on Japan, the authors—both Japanese and Western—represent a range of disciplines from economics, history, and political science, to sociology, anthropology, psychiatry, and literary criticism. Some of the essays draw comparisons with China or Korea, some with England, Europe, or America, and some with countries of the Third World. By showing us how the Japanese experience relates to that of other contexts, the authors provide us with important insights into Japan as well as into other societies undergoing a modern transformation. Originally published in 1979.

Photography in Japan 1853-1912 is a fascinating visual record of Japanese culture during its metamorphosis from a feudal society to a modern, industrial nation at a time when the art of photography was still in its infancy. The 350 rare and antique photos in this book, most of them published here for the first time, chronicle the introduction of photography in Japan and early Japanese photography. The images are more than just a history of photography in Japan, they are vital in helping to understand the dramatic changes that occurred in Japan during the mid-nineteenth century. These rare Japanese photographs—whether sensational or everyday, intimate or panoramic—document a nation about to abandon its traditional ways and enter the modern era. Taken between 1853 and 1912 by the most important Japanese and foreign photographers working in Japan, this is the first book to document the history of early photography in Japan a comprehensive and systematic way.

Not illustrated. 1861 edition. Excerpt: ...entered the temple, the greater part playing the most discordant music, consisting of two or three prolonged screaming notes, out of which it was difficult to construct any idea of tune, as the noisy flutes, flageolets, clarionets and hautboys resounded with the blasts of the priestmusicians, who with inflated cheek vied with each other in causing the whole building to re-echo with their inharmonious din and wailing notes. The chief priest or abbot followed in stately march, arrayed in a robe of red and gaudy-coloured silk with a long skirt trailing on the ground and wrought over with the star-shaped sacred emblem which forms the armorial bearings of the spiritual emperor. Two youthful acolytes followed in white dresses. Some of the priests were visitors and guests from other temples of the same Hokkishu sect of Budhists, and all wore purple hoods distinctive of their religious order dependent over the shoulder and down the back. The high priest with his acolytes in attendance advanced to a little platform, and then bowed to the principal altar. The common priests passed in single file into the centre of the building and formed two rows ranged opposite to each other. They knelt in front of little chests of lacquered ware, containing each a copy of the eight sacred classical books composed by some Budhist worthy connected with the original foundation of their sect. These little cases were opened, and the chauntings forthwith began. The high-priest bowed his head to the ground and offered a short prayer. The other priests from time to time uttered a BUDniST LITURGY. 215 response. Genuflexions, prostrations and invocations followed each other in rapid order. The high-priest then removed to a platform in a more central spot and nearer to the...

'Here's one of the most niche Bond Books I've read recently and it's very good.' Prof Neil Martin. 'It's a wonderfully researched and well-written book.' @MyBudgetBond 'Wonderfully Informative as usual from Mr Thomas.' Reader review from Literary 007. 'The quality and variety is endlessly fascinating.' Reader review from Literary 007.' An excellent and much needed insight into the once mysterious Mr Saito!' Reader review from Literary 007. This is the fan's guide to the writing and filming of You Only Live Twice, bringing you much that you might have never known before. Now over fifty years old it remains one of Fleming’s most fascinating stories whether in book or film form. It is also the story with the longest and most interesting gestation that started when Fleming first visited Japan in 1959, and then only came to some sort of finale when the film was released in 1968. This is the definitive story of the story; a story that is a literary history, a film history, a travel book, and is definitely more than just a film location guide. The reader will be taken on a unique 007 journey.If you love James Bond you’ll love the insights and details; if you love Japan, you will find it equally enjoyable and will want to follow in the same footsteps as Fleming and Bond. Written by Graham Thomas who is a critically acclaimed author of books about Japan and a regular contributor to Literary 007, (a must-view resource for the serious James Bond buff) this book has pages packed with detail never published before.

Gail R. Benjamin reaches beyond predictable images of authoritarian Japanese educators and automaton schoolchildren to show the advantages and disadvantages of a system remarkably different from the American one... --The New York Times Book Review Americans regard the Japanese educational system and the lives of Japanese children with a mixture of awe and indignance. We respect a system that produces higher literacy rates and superior math skills, but we reject the excesses of a system that leaves children with little free time and few outlets for creativity and self-expression. In Japanese Lessons, Gail R. Benjamin recounts her experiences as a American parent with two children in a Japanese elementary school. An anthropologist, Benjamin successfully weds the roles of observer and parent, illuminating the strengths of the Japanese system and suggesting ways in which Americans might learn from it. With an anthropologist's keen eye, Benjamin takes us through a full year in a Japanese public elementary school, bringing us into the classroom with its comforting structure, lively participation, varied teaching styles, and non-authoritarian teachers. We follow the children on class trips and Sports Days and through the rigors of summer vacation homework. We share the experiences of her young son and daughter as they react to Japanese schools, friends, and teachers. Through Benjamin we learn what it means to be a mother in Japan--how minute details, such as the way mothers prepare lunches for children, reflect cultural understandings of family and education.
