Investigating Japan

Prehistory to Postwar Reconstruction By Grant Miocevich

Japanese Visual Culture

Explorations in the World of Manga and Anime Edited by Mark W. MacWilliams

Ideal for: Grades 6­12. Part of the Longman Australia Modern History series designed for high school students, Investigating Japan focuses on the social, economic, and political forces that transformed Japan from a self-sufficient agrarian society into a world power. The text begins with a background study of Japan's distant past and then follows the main aspects of Japanese society through 1955. First-person narratives and other primary sources give life to the periods of history described in each section. Activities encourage students to analyze and make observations about the source materials, and a bibliography directs interested students to other sources of information. This volume is an excellent addition to Japanese language courses and any curriculum featuring world events and cultures. Longman Australia, 1999, 8 x 11.5, B/W illustrations and photos, 84pp.

................................................................................................................

Manga (comic books or graphic novels) and anime (animated films) are two of the most universally recognized expressions of contemporary Japanese culture. Japanese Visual Culture brings together an international group of scholars from various backgrounds and disciplines to probe the subtleties of these deceptively simple art forms. In addition to exploring the historical, cultural, sociological, and religious dimensions of manga and anime, contributors also examine specific sub-genres, artists, and stylistics. The book also addresses spirituality, the use of visual culture by new Japanese religious movements, Japanese Goth, nostalgia and Japanese pop, comics for girls, and more. ME Sharpe, 2008, 6 x 9, B/W illustrations, 368pp.

................................................................................................................

Who was Semimaru? Whether he was a blind wandering lute player or a beggar who was once a prince, Semimaru's legend has inspired many of Japan's literary giants for over a thousand years. From origins in the Golden Age of classical Japan, the story of Semimaru inspired significant written lore up through the 13th century. These works about Semimaru form a fascinating map of culture, class, and religion in the tumultuous last days of the Heian period. Matisoff's The Legend of Semimaru is the definitive English-language study of this fascinating figure. Included here are translations of the three most important Semimaru works, as well as the seven classical waka poems that have been attributed to Semimaru. This new edition includes an updated preface, a revised translation of the Noh play Ausaka Madman, and a supplementary bibliography. Cheng & Tsui, 2006, 5.5 x 8.5, 320pp.

Literature

Ferris Wheel

101 Modern and Contemporary Tanka Edited & translated by Kozue Uzawa, Amelia Fielden

Japanese Women Poets

An Anthology Translated by Hiroaki Sato

". . . [a] must-have addition to international poetry shelves. Highly recommended." -- The Midwest "[Ferris Wheel] can be a door into a whole wide world of poetry that the reader will always remember with a special sense of gratitude and return to with renewed appreciation." -- Janine

Beichman, author of Masaoka Shiki Book Review

Winner of the 2007 Japan­U.S. Friendship Commission Prize for the Translation of Japanese Literature, Ferris Wheel delivers the world of modern Japanese tanka to Western readers. Astonishingly complex imagery and emotions condensed into 31 syllables are the hallmarks of these evocative vignettes. Tanka have been an essential part of Japan's literary aesthetic for more than 1,300 years, and Ferris Wheel shows how modern masters have renewed tanka as a dynamic expression of Japanese sensibility. Here, Uzawa and Fielden have translated 101 tanka, many appearing for the first time in English, that combine classical form and an unmistakably modern sensibility. Each is presented in Japanese, with romanized transliteration and English translation. This format makes Ferris Wheel as relevant to translators and students of Japanese as it is welcoming to everyone interested in Japanese poetry. Cheng & Tsui, 2006, 5.5 x 8.5, 160pp.

................................................................................................................

Throughout history, Japanese women have excelled in poetry--from the folk songs of the Kojiki, to the age of haikai in the nineteenth century and the sensational poetry of today. Japanese Women Poets is an unrivaled English-language collection that features more than 100 female Japanese poets, with samples of their work arranged chronologically and including all major verse forms: choka, tanka, haikai, kanshi (verse written in Chinese), and free verse. The poems engage traditional themes as well as more modern topics such as the devastations of war, conflicts between child-rearing and work, and the refugee experience. The book provides explanations of terms and references, a glossary of poetic terms, a chronology, and a bibliography. ME Sharpe, 2008, 6 x 9, B/W illustrations, 592pp.

Tangled Hair

Selected Tanka from Midaregami (EnglishJapanese Bilingual Edition) By Akiko Yosano Translated by Sanford Goldstein, Seishi Shinoda Akiko Yosano's Tangled Hair, published in 1901, had a sensational impact on Japanese literature, and we are pleased to make this highly praised translation (originally published 30 years ago) available once again in a revised Cheng & Tsui edition. Yosano reshaped the tanka, the most popular form of Japanese poetry for 1,200 years, into a modern poetic form. In this new work, her tanka appear in their original Japanese, in romanized transliterations, and in English translation, along with a new preface and notes by Sanford Goldstein. Cheng & Tsui, 2002, 5 x 8, 192pp.

................................................................................................................

This book is the first complete translation of the tenth-century Kokinshu, one of the most important anthologies of the Japanese classical tradition. Imperially commissioned to return poetry to the public arena after a renewed interest in Chinese literature, its compilers linked the poems by topic, theme, imagery, and chronological and narrative progression to form an integrated anthology. Winner of the 1982 Japan­U.S. Friendship Commission's Friendship Literary Translation Award, Rodd's work presents annotated translations of the 1,111 poems, and of the original Japanese and Chinese prefaces. Includes a translator's introduction and an essay on Chinese influences on the Kokinshu prefaces. ¯ Indexed. Cheng & Tsui, 1996, 6 x 9, 442pp.

Adventures in Japanese

By Hiromi Peterson, Naomi Hirano-Omizo Ideal for: Grades 9­12; also recommended for grades 7­8. Drawing on their experience in American classrooms, authors Hiromi Peterson and Naomi Hirano-Omizo have developed a course that combines cultural activities with beginning-to-advanced language-learning instruction in all four language skills. Adventures in Japanese has been widely adopted across the nation. The series is user-friendly, fun, and aids teachers in integrating the National Standards for Foreign Language Education's "5-Cs": Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities. Those studying for the AP Japanese Language and Culture Exam will especially appreciate the new third edition books, which show how the series prepares students for the AP exam. Adventures in Japanese is full of culturally related activities--from learning Japanese songs to understanding Japan's educational system--that enrich learning. A "Japanese Culture Corner" presents projects that students research and share with classmates, and a "Fun Corner" offers instructions for Japanese crafts and games such as origami and karuta. Volume 1 covers hiragana and katakana, and by the end of Volume 4, students will have learned 340 kanji. See p. 16 for information on the Adventures in Japanese multimedia companions. Cheng & Tsui, 1998­2008, B/W illustrations.
