From 2005 through 2007, the author studied nine families from the original 1968 documentary film "Potters of Japan" by Richard and Marj Peeler. The Kondo, Shimaoka, Ichino, Kaneshige, Mori, Katō, Fujiwara, Waraku and Takahashi family names are synonymous with Japanese pottery. Each produces ceramic work that is respected and admired by thousands of Japanese and individuals throughout the world. This book is a review of each family since the original film and essentially a study of contemporary Japanese Ceramics from 1968 to the present. There are as many similarities as differences among this group of potters. Tradition is pivotal here; family name, prestige, artistic and technical secrets are passed from generation to generation with each family developing their own expression and unique qualities. Today, studio pottery in Japan has grown and there are many more people working and expanding the traditions of the original six old kilns (rokkouyo) and this book is an introduction to studio pottery in Japan today.

Nationalisms Of Japan

Author : Brian J. McVeigh
ISBN : 9781417503513

In this fresh and original analysis, Brian J. McVeigh argues persuasively that far from being unique, Japanese nationalism becomes demystified once 'management' and 'mysticism'—the same processes and practices that operate in other national states—are taken into account. Stripping away Orientalist-inspired misconceptions, the author stresses the variety and relative intensity of nationalisms, ranging from economic, ethnic, and educational to cultural, gendered, and religious. Highlighting the legacy of 'renovationism,' pluralism, and of identity among Japanese, this book will be an invaluable corrective to recent works that glibly proclaim the emergence of 'globalization,' 'internationalization,' and 'convergence.'

This book is an eyewitness report of what happened in Japan and Korea during the Occupation years from December 1945 to May 1948. It is also meant to be some other things. It is the story of that extraordinary figure General Douglas MacArthur, and the men around him. It is the story of the way American foreign polity operated in one segment of the globe and of the plot and counterplot that went on behind the Japanese throne in the years of war and of the subsequent conspiracy to thwart the Allied purposes. It is the story of the common people in two Oriental lands. It is, finally, the record of the author's education, and not a few readers will find it controversial. But it is an absorbing book nonetheless, and the years that have passed since its first publication have not diminished its value as the chronicle of a highly observant reporter. It is indeed an intriguing panorama that Gayn presents, and whether the reader agrees with him in all of his observations, he can hardly accuse him of being unexciting.
