              More Max Danger: The Continuing Adventures of an Expat in Tokyo (EPUB ebook)

              By Collins, Robert J.

              Life with Max Danger is never dull- as all readers of the first, best-selling volume of his adventures as an expatriate in Tokyo will know. Somehow he muddles his way from one baffling episode in the on-going struggle with the "Japanese economic-animal kingdom" to another. And he... miraculously stays a half-step ahead in the series of events that has swept him along through the pages of the Tokyo Weekender fortnightly for past three and a half years. "Mr. Collins is a funny writer with a knack for putting his finger exactly what it is that makes Japan bewildering, enduring, amusing inspiring, frustrating and, most of the time, captivating for many of its foreign guest." -The New York Times Review of Books "The stories are well written, neither unfair nor unkind and the humor is just about universal. This is a book of entertainment with an underlying fondness for what laughs at" -The Japan Times "If you are one of those people who feel inundated by the proliferation of how-to-do-business-in-Japan books, here's a chance to learn the same lessons by negative example and have belly laughs all the while" -The Asian Wall Street Journal "Max Danger is wondrously funny, friendly book." -Mainichi Daily News

              Hara-kiri: Japanese Ritual Suicide
               

              Hara-kiri: Japanese Ritual Suicide (EPUB ebook)

              By Seward, Jack

              Hari-Kiri is a definitive text on Japanese ritual suicide, also known as suppuku. To the average westerner, the word hara-kiri conjures up an image of excruciating, self-inflicted pain; of a deep, fatal incision. To the Japanese, this kind of suicide embodies the best qualities o...f courage, honor, and discipline. Through extensive research, author Jack Seward brings to the English-speaking public a dissertation on the subject that is thoroughly enlightening. Fluent in speaking, reading, and writing Japanese, he was able to glean information from ancient documents-many of them scrolls in the Japanese archives-that few foreigners have seen. The earliest writings on hara-kiri (known more formally as seppuku) are thus revealed, as are the intricate rituals surrounding the ceremony. "The major purpose of this book," says the author, "is to clarify the historical and sociological significance of a unique method of self-destruction." In fulfilling this purpose, author Seward has come up with a definitive work that is sure to arouse interest both as a scholarly effort and as simple, fascinating reading.

Sargeant, sports editor for the English-language, Asahi Evening News, realized that there were many foreigners who would enjoy Sumo more if they knew more of the essential fa...cts about it. Utilizing his knowledge and first-hand information on the sport, he produced this sumo book to meet this need. Written in the humorous, easy-to-read fashion with which the many readers of his sports column will be pleasantly familiar.

              A Late Chrysanthemum: Twenty-one Stories from the Japanese
               

              A Late Chrysanthemum: Twenty-one Stories from the Japanese (EPUB ebook – Digital Only)

              This collection of Japanese short stories reveals a rapidly changing Japanese society and the deep draw of its traditional culture. The first half of this century saw the coming of age of the Japanese short story. Influenced by Western literary techniques, such innovative writers... as Shiga Naoya, Ozaki Shiro, Yasunari Kawabata, Shimaki Kensaku, Hayashi Fumiko, Dazai Osamu, and (somewhat later) Kobo Abe reassessed the Japanese story tradition and brought new vigor to the uniquely Japanese sense of the detail and natural context of everyday life. The works of these writers stand at the center of modern Japan's literary development. Despite their differences, it is the simplicity and purity of their natural images-sultry late-summer days, cicadas, lizards, and the sounds of life's routines-that more than anything anchor the emotions and perceptions of their stories. For A Late Chrysanthemum, translator and editor Lane Dunlop has selected twenty-one stories by these seven intriguing and influential authors to convey the depth and range of the modern Japanese story, a discriminating selection which, in Dunlop's sure and masterful English renderings, won this book the Japan-United States Friendship Award for Literary Translation.
