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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Disability and chronic illness represents a special kind of cultural diversity, the "other" to "normal" able-bodiedness. Most studies of disability consider disability in North American or European contexts; and studies of diversity in Japan consider ethnic and cultural diversity, but not the differences arising from disability.

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. Recorded live at the 1971 Montreux Jazz Festival, the blistering Mongo at Montreux captures Mongo Santamaria in the absolute prime of his career, embracing all facets of his expansive musical vision for a set that is far more than the sum of its parts. Spanning from soulful Latin boogaloo grooves like "Come Candela" to psychedelic jazz renditions of pop hits like the Temptations' "Cloud Nine" to straight-up funk excursions like "Climax," Mongo at Montreux is relentlessly energetic music genetically engineered for dancing – most impressive of all is "Conversation in Drums," a virtual primer in Latin percussion.

IN THE NOW is the second solo album by British singer-songwriter Barry Gibb, released on 7 October 2016 by Columbia Records. Although his second solo album (since 1984's Now Voyager), it is the first of all new material since the Bee Gees' final studio album This Is Where I Came In (2001). Gibb said of the album: "This is a dream come true for me. It's a new chapter in my life. I always hoped one day that The Bee Gees would be with Columbia or indeed Sony so, it's a great joy for me to start again this way with such great people."
