Japan's Russia:

Challenging the East-West Paradigm
Olga V. Solovieva and Sho Konishi
ISBN: 9781621965534

"Japan’s Russia presents a re-interpretation of modern Japanese culture and society by focusing on the Russia-Japan relationship. Building on Sho Konishi’s earlier and important rethinking of visions of modernity in the early twentieth-century Russia-Japan relationship, this book expands the horizons by exploring a range of literary, artistic, intellectual, and political encounters. It also extends the timeframe from the late nineteenth century to the present day, offering fascinating and important insights." —Tessa Morris-Suzuki, Professor Emerita of Japanese History, Australian National University Read More..

Monstrosity and Chinese Cultural Identity:

Xenophobia and the Reimagination of Foreignness in Vernacular Literature since the Song Dynasty
Isaac Yue
ISBN: 9781621965046

Yue’s sharp observations on the evolving images of Zhang Fei, Sun Wukong, and Zhong Kui will surely inspire a reevaluation of the cultural relevance of the texts in which these figures appear." —Robert E. Hegel, Washington University in St. Louis Read More..
