  • Cultural Knowledge and Professional Training in the Poetic Treatises of
           Late Heian Japan
    • Abstract: For most of the Heian period (794–1185), aristocrats were expected to display a sophisticated knowledge of classical Japanese poetry (waka 和歌, or uta 歌). This entailed facility with the subtleties of deploying poems as part of a standard of elegance in everyday conversation—an expertise that encompassed the recognition and recreation of various forms of allusion, metaphor, and intertextual reference. To this end, courtiers needed to know the canon, to be masters of poetic technique, and to command broad cultural knowledge in fields ranging from history to botany to linguistics. How was this expertise taught, and how did this pedagogic practice change over time' This study examines the transformation in pedagogic ... Read More

  • Illustrated Debate over Wine and Rice (Shuhanron Emaki): Dining and
           Socializing in Late Muromachi Japan
    • Abstract: Banqueting was a frequent activity in elite society in late medieval Japan. Those in both the higher and lower tiers of the military, noble, and monastic classes organized banquets throughout the year, and these events provided opportunities for interaction among people of different social backgrounds in Kyoto as well as in the provinces. The shogun's yearly ceremonial calendar indicates that he regularly attended dinner gatherings hosted by his leading vassals and by the great Kyoto monasteries.1 Archaeological findings show that in the provinces, too, warrior elites engaged enthusiastically in hosting and attending banquets.2 And so did provincial abbots: the abbot of Chōrakuji 長楽寺 in Kōzuke Province (modern-day ...

  • A Parody in the Ruins: A Translation of Irisawa Yasuo's Waga Izumo, Waga
           Chinkon (Part 2)
    • Abstract: This is the second installment of a two-part translation of Waga Izumo, waga chinkon わが出雲・わが鎮魂 (My Izumo, My Requiem; 1968) by Irisawa Yasuo 入沢康夫 (b. 1931).1 The first installment, which includes a translation of Waga Izumo, appeared in MN 72:1. Part 2 contains a translation of Waga chinkon, Irisawa's notes to the poem followed by his afterword. For details about the text and its provenance, see my introduction in the first installment.Waga chinkon is filled with references to and quotations from other texts: ancient Japanese chronicles and poems, modern fiction and poetry in European languages, scholarly works by mythographers and historians, and more. It was not possible in this translation to preserve the ... Read More

  • Kindheit in der japanischen Geschichte: Vorstellungen und
           Erfahrungen/Childhood in Japanese History: Concepts and Experiences eds.
           by Michael Kinski, Harald Salomon, and Eike Großmann (review)
    • Abstract: Beginning in the 1980s, a handful of sociologists, anthropologists, and historians anticipated what would become a key social, economic, and political issue for many years to come: the rapid aging of Japanese society. Subsequently, hundreds of large-scale surveys suggested the necessity to rethink aging, elder care, and death and dying; careful qualitative studies critiqued inadequate institutions and care programs for the elderly; and policymakers found themselves scrambling to create better and a greater variety of solutions designed to address the diverse needs of the elderly and their families. By the 1990s the tide had perhaps not turned, but the issue of an aging society was reframed, not as a problem of ... Read More

  • Lovable Losers: The Heike in Action and Memory eds. by Mikael S. Adolphson
           and Anne Commons (review)
    • Abstract: I have long been a Heike fan, or, more precisely, a Heike fan, since it is more the tale, Heike monogatari, than the historical personages themselves, that interests me. The story, moreover, is one that continues to resonate in modern Japan, as illustrated by the following anecdote: On visits to Japan after I had reviewed Helen McCullough's 1988 translation of the tale, I began to explore places where the action occurred—a rewarding experience that I highly recommend.1 Dan no ura, site of the final battle, was particularly memorable. There I found a small harbor lined with a cluster of houses, fishing boats moored behind them. A shrine to Ebisu, the patron deity of fishermen, marked the bridge leading to the ... Read More

    • Abstract: Over a decade ago, Jacqueline Stone began publishing a series of fascinating articles on Buddhist deathbed rites. Now the deep knowledge and nuanced insights that she has gained on this important topic have been brought together in a magnificent full-length study. Right Thoughts at the Last Moment is a big book, both in terms of its length (382 pages of text, a 10-page annotated bibliography of deathbed manuals, 114 pages of detailed and informative notes, a 23-page glossary of the Chinese characters for important terms, a 37-page bibliography of primary sources and Japanese and English secondary sources, and an index) and in terms of its potential impact on medieval Japanese studies and the comparative history of ...

  • Buddhism and the Transformation of Old Age in Medieval Japan by Edward R.
           Drott (review)
    • Abstract: Edward Drott's Buddhism and the Transformation of Old Age in Medieval Japan is, to my knowledge, the first book-length study of old age in medieval Japan. Drott charts the changing configurations of the meanings ascribed to old age in literary/historical/religious texts, arguing that in the Nara and early Heian periods, old age was used to signify an abject and denigrated status, and that it was only from the late Heian through to the Muromachi periods that the bodies of the aged came to be imbued with positive symbolic meanings.Drott's approach is to read a wide range of texts in conjunction with their political, social, and religious milieu, focusing in particular on the political and ideological struggles that ...

  • Perfumed Sleeves and Tangled Hair: Body, Woman, and Desire in Medieval
           Japanese Narratives by Rajyashree Pandey (review)
    • Abstract: Rajyashree Pandey's Perfumed Sleeves and Tangled Hair offers a new approach for studying the body in medieval Japanese narratives. The texts she studies range from courtly writings (Genji monogatari and Murasaki shikibu nikki) to setsuwa collections (Hosshinshū, Kankyo no tomo, and Shasekishū) and otogizōshi tales (Izumi shikibu and Jippon ōgi). Though scholars do not typically group these texts together because they represent very different genres, Pandey does so to show that there is no transhistorical or stable category of "woman" across these diverse articulations of female sexuality. Her broadest claim is that we overstate the somatophobia in medieval Japanese literature, assuming incorrectly that Buddhist ... Read More

  • Dōgen and Sōtō Zen ed. by Steven Heine (review)
    • Abstract: This volume of collected essays by respected academics is another valuable contribution from editor Steven Heine. This book offers many original insights into both Dōgen (1200–1253) and the influence of the Sōtō school that his teachings later inspired. The material on Dōgen delves further into areas already broached in previous studies. Outside Japan, the study of later developments and current practices of Sōtō Zen is still at an early stage, so these essays open interesting new pathways for research.Heine is one of the most eminent and prolific scholars of Dōgen and Zen koan literature in the West. His numerous edited compilations, many done in collaboration with Dale Wright, include books focusing on Dōgen ... Read More

  • Assembling Shinto: Buddhist Approaches to Kami Worship in Medieval Japan
           by Anna Andreeva (review)
    • Abstract: This book's title may suggest that it focuses on such abstractions as Shinto and Buddhism and their interaction in medieval Japan. To this reviewer's relief, that proves not to be the case. Assembling Shinto offers a detailed and sophisticated case study of the development of a single thread of what modern scholars have called medieval Shinto: the so-called Miwa lineage. Perhaps the author (or the publisher) worried that flagging "Miwa" as the book's focus in the title would put readers off as being too specific. In this review I cannot play along with that ruse, but I can impress on those who are easily scared that both Miwa and this book are worth the time and effort one might dedicate to them, if one is ...

           Martha Chaiklin (review)
    • Abstract: The book Mediated by Gifts: Politics and Society in Japan, 1350–1850, edited by Martha Chaiklin, offers insight into important aspects of material life in medieval and early modern Japan. Seven case studies, presented in chronological order, examine the topic of gift giving, and all offer welcome methodological approaches. The diverse palette of themes makes the book a rewarding read and ranges from private initiatives to political implications, from very modest milieus to the highest spheres of society. The reader encounters gift-giving practices engaged in for the sake of both material and nonmaterial, including social, benefit. Sometimes gifts involved personal interests, sometimes wider collective concerns. The ... Read More

JaHyun Kim Haboush was a colleague and friend to many of us. I cherish at least two delightful memories of her: peering together through the fading light at Ch'ŏnji (the crater lake atop Mount Paektu) in 1988 and enjoying several days of spirited debate in Oxford in 2001 at an invitational conference on the East Asian War of 1592–1598.

  • Sea Rovers, Silver, and Samurai: Maritime East Asia in Global History,
           1550–1700 eds. by Tonio Andrade and Xing Hang (review)
    • Abstract: This collection of sixteen essays arranged roughly in chronological order originates from a 2011 conference organized by Tonio Andrade. He and coeditor Xing Hang bring together an impressive array of international scholars representing different generations, from pioneers who have been leading the field since the 1970s to emerging scholars. The aim of this book is to examine the history of the early modern East Asian maritime realm, not as another Mediterranean or as a mere extension to the Indian Ocean world, but in its own right. In doing so the authors hope to provide valuable data that adds to the ongoing discussion about the so-called Great Divergence between Western Europe and East Asia.The volume begins with ...

  • In Search of the Way: Thought and Religion in Early-Modern Japan,
           1582–1860 by Richard Bowring (review)
    • Abstract: The field of Tokugawa intellectual history outside of Japan has grown and matured over the last several decades. The various forms of Confucianism that developed during the Edo period, as well as the scholarly reactions against them, dominated the field during the 1970s and 1980s, but other areas have come under scrutiny since then, enriching it in important ways as a result. The complexity and diversity that have emerged have now been encapsulated in a single volume with Richard Bowring's In Search of the Way: Thought and Religion in Early-Modern Japan, 1582–1860. By bringing together the various thinkers and intellectual movements in this book, which he describes as a continuation of his previous work, The ... Read More

  • Defensive Positions: The Politics of Maritime Security in Tokugawa Japan
           by Noell Wilson (review)
    • Abstract: This provocative book provides us with a new understanding of maritime defense during the Tokugawa period. Taking the perspective of the daimyo houses that bore the burden of actual defensive duties, author Noell Wilson highlights in particular the roles of the Nabeshima of Saga domain and the Kuroda of Fukuoka domain, whose chief duty was defense of the international trading port of Nagasaki. She argues that in the mid-seventeenth century they participated in creating a "Nagasaki model" of coastal defense, which became the template for coastal defense in the Ezo region toward the end of the eighteenth century and then later in the Kanto re- gion during the final decades of Tokugawa rule. Rather than taking on ... Read More

           Interactions and Asian Integration eds. by Marc Frey and Nicola Spakowski
           (review)
    • Abstract: Since the 1970s, the field of Pan-Asian studies has blossomed with the publication of numerous case studies on individual former colonies, now independent countries, and works on transnational themes such as forced labor, collaboration, and Japanese trained armies. Much of this research highlights how the grim reality of Japanese subjugation and exploitation in wartime Southeast Asia contradicted the lofty rhetoric of Pan-Asian liberation and dazzling promises of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. There are also important studies that examine the domestic discourse on Pan-Asianism in Japan—how it evolved from the late nineteenth century up through the 1931–1945 Pacific War and what role it played in terms ...

  • Significant Soil: Settler Colonialism and Japan's Urban Empire in
           Manchuria by Emer O'Dwyer (review)
    • Abstract: In this long but well-focused and deeply researched study, Emer O'Dwyer gives us the most comprehensive account so far in English of a Japanese imperial city outside the home islands. The term "imperial" is perhaps preferable to "colonial," since Dairen (Ch. Dalian), the city concerned, was a settler city of a type different from, say, Taipei or Seoul under Japanese rule. Yet Dairen was clearly crucial to the Japanese empire, and this study adds immensely to our knowledge of the relationship between the metropole and the periphery. It is not only theoretically acute, but is based in a wide and impressive range of Japanese-language sources and written in a clear and accessible style.The book starts by explaining the ...

  • Surviving in Violent Conflicts: Chinese Interpreters in the Second
           Sino-Japanese War 1931–1945 by Ting Guo (review)
    • Abstract: In most conflicts there is a linguistic disjuncture between the invading army and the invaded country. In the case of the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Japanese project in China required communication with the Chinese people. Japanese soldiers, bureaucrats, educators, journalists, and businessmen operated in the Chinese theater—although obviously the key tension point was with Japanese military operations. Interpreters played an essential role in this conflict, and yet they are rarely discussed in the scholarly literature even in Chinese.We are fortunate therefore to have this new study by Ting Guo, which focuses on interpreters in all segments of the conflict in China. Guo chooses to cast a wide net, starting in ... Read More

It is, above all, a book intensely committed to rereading Abe as a thinker along the lines of the twentieth- century European philosophy and critical thought espoused by Martin Heidegger, Jacques Derrida, Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, Jean-Luc Nancy, and Etienne Balibar. At the same time, it goes against the grain of a conventional Japan studies that teleologically stages the answer to all matters as a return to ... Read More

    • Abstract: What are the implications of "globalization" for social justice movements around the world' One way to read Joseph Hankins's rich and thoughtful study of the shifting landscape of Buraku politics in contemporary Japan is as an extended response to this question. Hankins's interest in Buraku issues was initially sparked (at least in part) by the discovery of one of those personally inflected strands of global connection that feel so emblematic of our current moment. Invited to participate in a field trip to a tannery in Tochigi as an anthropology graduate student, Hankins was taken aback when the manager of the facility began making small talk with him about his hometown of Lubbock, Texas. As it turned out, most of ... Read More

  • Post-war Japan as a Sea Power: Imperial Legacy, Wartime Experience and the
           Making of a Navy by Alessio Patalano (review)
    • Abstract: Japan operates a world-class if modest-sized navy, euphemistically named the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) to conform to the nation's post–World War II constitution, which forswears the use of arms for political purposes. The JMSDF is part of a combined US-Japanese fleet that constitutes the enforcement arm of allied strategy vis-à-vis surging Chinese economic and military might. And yet little has been written in English about this close partner to the US Navy, a shortfall that is doubly striking in light of the profusion of studies on the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN), the JMSDF's institutional forebear. Chinese strategist Sun Tzu urged sovereigns and generals to know themselves and their foes to ... Read More

Mark Ramseyer's latest book-length contribution to the scholarship on Japanese law is—as expected—articulate and insightful. It revisits the subject of why Japan has less civil litigation than the United States, and while some in the field of Japanese law might question the need to further pursue the seemingly interminable debate on this subject, Ramseyer presents some interesting new perspectives that are certainly worthy of consideration.Rejecting arguments based on culture and systemic dysfunctionality, Ramseyer asserts that Japanese courts ...

    • Abstract: The nuclear meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant in March 2011 caused profound uncertainty, fear, and confusion. In the immediate aftermath of the disaster, the Japanese government and nuclear industry attempted to allay public concern about the risks of radioactive contamination with reassurances grounded in scientific language and data. Although these efforts initially led to some degree of communication between citizens, the state, and experts, they ultimately failed to mitigate the public's anxiety about short- and long-term hazards to health and food safety. Where the public perceived an invisible or evolving danger, government and industry attempted to impose their authority through the use of ... Read More

They both make strong contributions to our understanding of the shifting global politics and transnational cultural flows impacting the world since the 1980s. Both expose visible and invisible entanglements in transpacific relationships while taking different methodological approaches to search for resolutions. They also bring different political lenses to bear on their particular issues—in White's case, memorializing ... Read More
