Discovery Japan delivers the true sound and feel of the traditional Japanese musical culture. The instrumentalists and vocalists have been recorded in isolation, not as ensembles, and the sound quality is excellent. Real Japanese folk vocal section includes male and female swoops, glides, and a variety of tonal color and format shifts. The instrumental tracks include two types of shamisen, plus shakuhachi, koto, and more. Many synths have patches with these instrument names, but no synth has captured the soul of these ethnic instruments the way Discovery Japan has. Discovery Japan is the real deal.

Miles Davis - Pangaea (1975) [2CD] {2006 DSD Japan Mini LP Edition, SICP-1232/33}

This is the second of two performances from February 1975 at the Osaka Festival Hall in Japan. This is the evening show; the Columbia release Agharta was the afternoon show. Pangaea is comprised either as a double LP or double CD of two tracks, "Zimbabwe" and "Gondwana." Each is divided into two parts. The band here is comprised of Sonny Fortune on saxophones, Pete Cosey (who also played synth) and Reggie Lucas on guitars, Michael Henderson on bass, Al Foster on drums, James Mtume on percussion, and Davis on trumpet and organ. The band, no doubt inspired by their amazing performance earlier in the day, comes out swinging, and I mean like Muhammad Ali, not Benny Goodman.

Japan's New Party System
Publisher: University | ISBN: 0813330572 | edition 2000 | PDF | 344 pages | 35,99 mb

The recent and dramatic changes in the configurations and coalitions of Japan’s political parties have prompted Ronald Hrebenar to reevaluate his previous book, The Japanese Party System. In the summer of 1993, Japanese politics changed fundamentally from the pattern which had been the norm since 1955. No longer does the Liberal Democratic Party (LPD) rule national-level politics without the need to resort to coalitions and lesser parties. Even more significant are the two non-LDP governments formed under the prime ministerships of Hosokawa and Hata. No longer is the opposition dominated by the “never to govern” Japan Socialist party. By December 1994 a new opposition party emerged from nine former opposition parties to move Japan toward a two-party system.In this book, Hrebenar explores the political attitudes, election laws, and the role of political money in Japan, historically as well as in context of the post-1993 changes. Discussion turns to the LDP and how its fragmentation led to the these changes. Coverage of the most recent Japanese election makes this an invaluable text for students of Japan and its political systems.

Japan's Colonization of Korea: Discourse and Power.

Japan's Colonization of Korea: Discourse and Power.

Autor: Alexis Dudden, "Japan's Colonization of Korea: Discourse and Power."
ISBN: 082483139X | 2006 edition | PDF | 215 Pages | 1.92 MB

Early chapters describe the global atmosphere that declared Japan the legal ruler of Korea and frame the significance of the discourse of early twentieth-century international law and how its terms became Japanese. Dudden then brings together these discussions in her analysis of how Meiji leaders embedded this discourse into legal precedent for Japan, particularly in its relations with Korea. Remaining chapters explore the limits of these "universal" ideas and consider how the international arena measured Japan's use of its terms. Dudden squares her examination of the legality of Japan's imperialist designs by discussing the place of colonial policy studies in Japan at the time, demonstrating how this new discipline further created a common sense that Japan's empire accorded to knowledgeable practice.

Postwar Japan as History

Postwar Japan as History

Andrew Gordon, "Postwar Japan as History"
University of California Press | October 20, 1993 | English | ISBN: 0520074750 | 563 pages | PDF | 60 Mb

Japan's catapult to world economic power has inspired many studies by social scientists, but few have looked at the 45 years of postwar Japan through the lens of history. The contributors to this book seek to offer such a view. As they examine three related themes of postwar history, the authors describe an ongoing historical process marked by unexpected changes, such as Japan's extraordinary economic growth, and unanticipated continuities, such as the endurance of conservative rule. A provocative set of interpretative essays by eminent scholars, this book will appeal to anyone interested in the history of twentieth-century Japan and the dilemmas facing Japan today.

apan is a fascinating country! 125 million people in a country only slightly larger than New Zealand, and just as mountainous. We've all seen the TV footage - cramped housing, industrial haze and crowded trains - but what about 'the real Japan'? Spectacular mountains, twisting rivers, hidden harbours and rugged coastlines. This is the story of Craig McLachlan's 99 day walk from one end to the other in search of 'the real Japan'. 1993 - what a year to do it! The year of the endless rainy season! The year without a summer! The year of earhtquakes, tsunami and typhoons - and sore feet! This is one of five books available on Amazon about McLachlan's various adventures in Japan. He has also climbed Japan's 100 Famous Mountains in record time (78 days!), hiked the 88 Sacred Temples of Shikoku Pilgrimage, journeyed around the Saigoku 33 Temples of Kannon Pilgrimage, and trekked from the Sea of Japan to the Pacific Ocean climbing all Japan's 3,000-meter peaks along the way.

At Home in Japan: My Life in Rural Japan by Rebecca Otowa
English | 15 Mar. 2010 | ISBN: 4805310782 | 176 Pages | EPUB | 13 MB

At Home in Japan tells the true story of a foreign woman who has been, for 30 years, the housewife, custodian and chatelaine of a 350-year-old farmhouse in rural Japan. This astonishing book traces a circular path, from the basic physical details of life in the house and village, through relationships with family, neighbors and the natural and supernatural entities with whom the family shares the house.

Pacific Alliance: Reviving U.S.-Japan Relations
Kent E. Calder PhD | ISBN: 0300146728 | PDF | 313 pages | May 2009 | 2 MB

Despite the enduring importance of the U.S.–Japan security alliance, the broader relationship between the two countries is today beset by sobering new difficulties. In this comprehensive comparative analysis of the transpacific alliance and its political, economic, and social foundations, Kent E. Calder, a leading Japan specialist, asserts that bilateral relations between the two countries are dangerously eroding as both seek broader options in a globally oriented world.

Calder documents the quiet erosion of America’s multidimensional ties with Japan as China rises, generations change, and new forces arise in both American and Japanese politics. He then assesses consequences for a twenty-first-century military alliance with formidable coordination requirements, explores alternative foreign paradigms for dealing with the United States, adopted by Britain, Germany, and China, and offers prescriptions for restoring U.S.–Japan relations to vitality once again.

Japan in Decline: Fact or Fiction? (repost)

Purnendra Jain, "Japan in Decline: Fact or Fiction?"
English | ISBN 10: 1906876371 | 2011 | PDF | 230 pages | 1 MB

To what extent is Japan in decline? In recent years popular writings, media commentaries and analysts often take the view that the rise of Japan is long since over and that the world's second largest economy is not just treading water but that society and the economy are failing, with potential catastrophic outcomes. But is this really the case? Could it be that once again Japan is being misread and misinterpreted? Are there not both obvious and less obvious signs of renewal and recovery? And how might the new DPJ-led government reform Japan?

Japan’s extraordinary culture is like no other in the world. The 2,000-year-old civilization grew through periods of seclusion and assimilation to cultivate a society responsible for immeasurable influences on the rest of the world. What makes Japan so distinctive? The answer is more than just spiritual beliefs or culinary tastes. It’s the ongoing clash between tradition and modernity; a conflict shaped by Japan’s long history of engagement and isolation.
