An Introduction to Japan

Excerpt

An Introduction to Japan has been prepared and published under the auspices of the Japan Society in an effort to meet a growing interest in Japan and Japanese-American relationships on the part of American colleges, schools, and adult education groups. In a sense the present volume is the successor to the Japan Society Syllabus, last published in 1937. Rather than prepare a new edition of the Syllabus, however, the editors have felt it desirable to begin afresh and to issue a completely new volume, which would not only reflect the great changes that have taken place in Japan in the intervening years but also take into account the fundamental alteration in the relationship between Japan and the United States from one of rivalry between two mutually distrustful powers to the far more complex interdependent relationship of today.

Readings and films listed at the end of each section are merely suggestions and are not intended to comprise an exhaustive bibliography. Japan, edited byHugh Borton (Ithaca, Cornell University Press, 1951), is a convenient and reliable source of information on all phases of Japanese life and affairs. For further materials the reader is referred to the best short bibliography on Japan, A Selected List of Books and Articles on Japan in English, French, and German, revised and enlarged edition, compiled byHugh Borton,Serge Elisséeff . . .
