Diversity in Japanese Culture and Language
Publication Date: 1995-01-04
"Diversity in Japanese Culture and Language addresses the need for broader perspectives on the experience of being Japanese or living in Japan, and contributes to broader discussions of cultural plurality, nationalism, multiculturalism, cultural dominance and linguistic diversity. Fields of study to which the book is of special relevance include Japanese studies, intercultural communication, international relations, minority studies, indigenous people's studies, linguistics, anthropology and sociology." "Contributions from academics and grass-roots people combine in this unique work to describe the existing plurality in Japan, in order to start balancing the perspectives which currently exist in the non-Japanese literature about Japan. It challenges the myth of Japanese uniqueness by focussing on very common experiences that Japanese people share with people in other parts of the world. Above all, it seeks to counteract the common tendency to see complexity as a threat by illustrating the value of diversity and cultural plurality to society as a whole."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Seven modern classics in parallel text. Breaking Into Japanese Literature is a Kodansha International publication.
Early Modern Japanese Literature
Publication Date: 2002-07-03
This is the first anthology ever devoted to early modern Japanese literature, spanning the period from 1600 to 1900, known variously as the Edo or the Tokugawa, one of the most creative epochs of Japanese culture. This anthology, which will be of vital interest to anyone involved in this era, includes not only fiction, poetry, and drama, but also essays, treatises, literary criticism, comic poetry, adaptations from Chinese, folk stories and other non-canonical works. Many of these texts have never been translated into English before, and several classics have been newly translated for this collection.
