Batou is a cyborg. His body is artificial: the only remnants left of his humanity are traces of his brain ... and the memories of a woman called The Major. A detective for the government's covert anti-terrorist unit, Public Security Section 9, Batou is investigating the case of a gynoid - a hyper-realistic female robot created specifically for sexual companionship - who malfunctions and slaughters her owner. As Batou delves deeper into the investigation, questions arise about humanity's need to immortalize its image in dolls. Together, Batou and his partner must take on violent Yakuza thugs, devious hackers, government bureaucrats and corporate criminals to uncover the shocking truth behind the crime.

The International Military Tribunal for the Far East provides the framework for this monumental archive. The program uses the charges themselves and the evidence presented to illustrate the events: the Manchurian, Sian, China, and Nanking Incidents; the occupation of Northern Indochina; the Japanese-American negotiations in late 1941; the attack on Pearl Harbor; the Bataan Death March; the turning tide and the end of the war.

The Kodansha kanji dictionary( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Kodansha Kanji Dictionary-a revised, expanded edition of Jack Halpern's groundbreaking New Japanese-English Character Dictionary-is the most complete, linguistically accurate, and up-to-date dictionary of its kind. The culmination of more than twenty years of labor-some one hundred man-years-this authoritative and easy-to-use dictionary has been celebrated the world over by students and teachers of the Japanese language for its wealth of detailed information on the meanings and usages of Sino-Japanese characters. One of the unique features that has made this dictionary so popular is the core meaning, a concise keyword that facilitates an instant grasp of the fundamental concept of each kanji. Along with detailed character meanings, the core meaning helps learners decode unfamiliar compound words from the meanings of their components. Another unique feature is the System of Kanji Indexing by Patterns (SKIP), a revolutionary indexing system that makes it possible to locate entries as quickly and as accurately as in alphabetical dictionaries. With SKIP, all you need to do to find a kanji is identify the geometrical pattern to which it belongs, then count the strokes in each part of that pattern-a much speedier process than searching by traditional methods such as by radical. Updates include the integration of 5,458 entry characters-almost 20 percent more than in the first edition. This includes all the government-prescribed Joyo and Jinmei Kanji, as well as extensive coverage of old and alternative character forms. The new edition also features more readings, meanings, synonym articles, usage notes, and vocabulary items than before. And, in keeping with modern Japanese-language curricula, character and compound readings are shown in kana instead of romanized Japanese. With its wealth of detailed and up-to-date information on kanji meanings, readings, and usages, its accessible new design, its convenient lookup meth
