For generations, children’s books provided American readers with their first impressions of Japan. Seemingly authoritative, and full of fascinating details about daily life in a distant land, these publications often presented a mixture of facts, stereotypes, and complete fabrications. This volume takes readers on a journey through nearly 200 years of American children’s books depicting Japanese culture, starting with the illustrated journal of a boy who accompanied Commodore Matthew Perry on his historic voyage in the 1850s. Along the way, it traces the important role that representations of Japan played in the evolution of children’s literature, including the early works of Edward Stratemeyer, who went on to create such iconic characters as Nancy Drew. It also considers how American children’s books about Japan have gradually become more realistic with more Japanese-American authors entering the field, and with texts grappling with such serious subjects as internment camps and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Drawing from the Library of Congress’s massive collection, Sybille A. Jagusch presents long passages from many different types of Japanese-themed children’s books and periodicals—including travelogues, histories, rare picture books, folktale collections, and boys’ adventure stories—to give readers a fascinating look at these striking texts. Published by Rutgers University Press, in association with the Library of Congress.

The Japanese are in the process of re-creating themselves--an endeavor they have undertaken at intervals throughout history, always prompted by a combination of domestic and global forces. In this landmark book, Patrick Smith asserts that a variety of forces--the achievement of material affluence, the Cold War's end, and the death of Emperor Hirohito--are now spurring Japan once again toward a fundamental redefinition of itself. As Smith argues, this requires of the West an equally thorough reevaluation of the picture we have held of Japan over the past half-century. He reveals how economic overdevelopment conceals profound political, social, and psychological under-development. And by refocusing on "internal history" and the Japanese character, Smith offers a new framework for understanding Japan and the Japanese as they really are. The Japanese, he says, are now seeking to alter the very thing we believe distinguishes them: the relationship between the individual and society. Timely, measured, and authoritative, this book illuminates a new Japan, a nation preparing to drop the mask it holds up to the West and to steer a course of its own in the world.

Ein dunkles Kapitel der US-Geschichte: In dieser beeindruckenden Graphic Novel schildert George Takei seine Erlebnisse in jenen Internierungslagern, die von den USA im 2. Weltkrieg für den Teil der Bevölkerung mit japanischen Wurzeln eingerichtet wurden. Die Welt des vierjährigen George verändert sich von dem einen Moment auf den anderen, als sich eines Morgens sein Heimatland im Krieg mit dem seines Vaters befindet. Seine ganze Familie? Plötzlich DER FEIND. All diese Erlebnisse, die Takei zu demjenigen machten, der er nun ist: Ein weltbekannter Bürgerrechts-Aktivist, Autor und beliebter Schauspieler. Die Graphic Novel, kreiert von Takei und den Co-Autoren Justin Eisinger, Steven Scott sowie Zeichnerin Harmony Becker, liefert Antworten zu Fragen, die gerade im heutigen Amerika, geprägt durch neu aufflammende Konflikte innerhalb der Gesellschaft und mit anderen Nationen, wichtiger sind denn je: Was ist ein US-Amerikaner? Wer entscheidet dies? Wenn die Welt sich gegen dich wendet: Was kann ein einzelner Mensch bewirken?

Invisible Children in the Society and Its Schools
Language: en
Pages: 328
Authors: Sue Books
Categories: Education
Type: BOOK - Published: 2015-04-24 - Publisher: Routledge
The authors in this book use the metaphors of invisibility and visibility to explore the social and school lives of many children and young people in North America whose complexity, strengths, and vulnerabilities are largely unseen in the society and its schools. These “invisible children” are socially devalued in the sense that alleviating the difficult conditions of their lives is not a priority—children who are subjected to derogatory stereotypes, who are educationally neglected in schools that respond inadequately if at all to their needs, and who receive relatively little attention from scholars in the field of education or writers in the popular press. The chapter authors, some of the most passionate and insightful scholars in the field of education today, detail oversights and assaults, visible and invisible, but also affirm the capacity of many of these young people to survive, flourish, and often educate others, despite the painful and even desperate circumstances of their lives. By sharing their voices, providing basic information about them, and offering thoughtful analysis of their social situation, this volume combines education and advocacy in an accessible volume responsive to some of the most pressing issues of our time. Although their research methodologies differ, all of
