11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Treat summarizes the Japanese contribution to such ongoing international debates as the crisis of modern ethics, the relationship of experience to memory, and the possibility of writing history. This Japanese perspective, he shows, both confirms and amends many of the assertions made in the West on the shift that the death camps and nuclear weapons have jointly signaled for the modern world and for the future

"An interdisciplinary collection of essays by Asian, American and European scholars, which takes up both the newer and traditional debates in cultural theory while relating the study of the popular to the rhetoric that specifically surrounds the issue of a Japanese national identity in the age of globalization. This volume explores a wide range of cultural practices - including popular literature, film, television, fashion, music and advertising - and the methods for analysing them." "Contemporary Japan and Popular Culture is of interest to both teachers and students of modern Japan and cultural studies world-wide."--Jacket

"Seattle, 1983. Frightened by the growing epidemic that has stricken his friends, Jeff flees New York for the Pacific Northwest, only to realize AIDS has a foothold in his new home. As he distracts himself with alcohol and one-night stands, Jeff meets Henry, an alluring younger man with a weakness for heroin. Despite the jarring contrasts in their personalities and backgrounds, the two are drawn inexorably together. But as their love develops, so do numerous complications. In an effort to halt their freefall into addiction, Jeff and Henry move in with Nan, a middle-aged divorcee who has turned her home into a sanctuary for gay men in crisis. The Rise and Fall of the Yellow House revisits the early years of AIDS in the Northwest with vivid detail, unrelenting honesty, and a profound compassion for a generation lost to the plague."--

Beheaded emperors and the absent figure in contemporary Japanese literature by John Whittier Treat( )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fukuzawa Schichiros 1960 short story " Furyu mutan" ("The Story of a Dream of Courtly Elegance") humurously postulate an anarchic popular uprising that culminates in the execution ofthe Japanese imperial family. A right-wing terrorist attack on the story's publisher not only prompted an end to the depiction of the emperor in fiction but also may have caused the informal ban-still in force-against any overtly critical public discussion of the emperor system (tenno-sei). What distinguised "Furyu Mutan" from earlier literary treatments of the emperor is its unique parody of his postwar, postdivine status as emblem of a democratic citizentry and, at the same time, of his cultural duties as principal poet of the nation. Fukuzawa's canivalesque mockery of imperial verse challenges the rhetoric of the emperor's ambigous role as Japan's foremost symbol and reigning symbolist. The apparent price, however, has been the freedom of Japanese writers to raise such issues ever again
