ASPAC 2014 Abstract: Japanese Historical Process in Anglophone Cinema

Filed under: — Jonathan Dresner @ 2:29 pm Print
It's that time of year again, when procrastinators do their taxes, spring cleaning, and summer abstract writing in one weekend! My proposed paper for ASPAC this year (at Western Washington in Bellingham) is a variation on something I've been working on for a while now, no surprise to longtime readers of this blog, or of HNN, or to my students who have heard me rant and rail about the tragedies of historical fiction and historical movies for a decade or more. I'm going to try to focus on a kind of historiographical reading of the movies, and to talk about how we as public experts, teachers and writers, might productively respond to or use these works. Here's the abstract itself, which was limited to 100 words:
Japanese Historical Process in Anglophone Cinema History is a rich vein of stories and settings, and popular historical movies can have immense effects on the historical understanding of general publics. This is especially true in Japanese history in English-speaking societies, where knowledge is often limited to one-sided understandings of unique episodes and orientalist mythologies of unchanging culture. This paper will examine a number of English-language movies, recent and older, not to catalog historical errors, but to understand how historical memory and Japanese historical processes are understood and portrayed. Finally, this paper will consider how that might affect the work of Japan specialists addressing these audiences.
I have a preliminary list of movies to address, most of which I've seen. I'd be interested to know if anyone out there has ideas about other films to consider?
  • The Last Samurai
  • 47 Ronin (see also)
  • Letters from Iwo Jima
  • The Barbarian and the Geisha
  • Memoirs of a Geisha
  • Shogun
  • Karate Kid 2
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III
Obviously, some of these are more important than others, in terms of audience range and likely effect on people's ability to think about history in a coherent fashion: KK2 is probably more important than TMNT3, and the John Wayne, whatever its flaws or virtues, isn't going to be more than a faint echo in the historical consciousness of contemporary audiences. The more recent films, including the wretched mess from Christmas, are going to weigh more heavily.

"But writers of fiction do not stumble onto locales or times: they choose them and they use them to serve their narrative and aesthetic ends." -- Jonathan Dresner

Buy Zithromax Without Prescription, "...flaws typical of the genre: a carefully set but very selective milieu; characters cobbled together from cultural and psychosocial fragments; wildly unlikely encounters and inappropriate behavior. Zithromax coupon, ... I don’t ever use historical fiction in my teaching, after Zithromax, Order Zithromax online c.o.d, and I rarely read it (especially in my own field!)." -- Jonathan Dresner

Buy Retin-A Without Prescription

Filed under: — Jonathan Dresner @ 11:54 pm Print

Buy Retin-A Without Prescription, There are good reasons to bring Japan into the gun control debate in the United States: the relative success of firearms regulation in Japan, the recent rise of gun violence connected to organized crime, the history of weapons-carrying elites, etc. Buying Retin-A online over the counter, But WWII had nothing whatsoever to do with gun rights, gun control, doses Retin-A work, Retin-A pharmacy, or the 2nd amendment.

Why bring this up, Retin-A no prescription. Retin-A dosage, Because of Ed Emery, Republican representative to the Missouri state legislature from Lamar, Retin-A blogs, Order Retin-A no prescription, MO. In a video produced last April, what is Retin-A, Retin-A use, Rep. Emery said:

We know in a historical context that Japan was considering an invasion on the land mass of the United States of America, but they were afraid to, and the reason they were afraid to [is] because they knew that every american is armed, Buy Retin-A Without Prescription. and although they were not afraid of our armies, buy Retin-A without prescription, Kjøpe Retin-A på nett, köpa Retin-A online, they were afraid of our citizens.

Randy Turner, who posted the video recently, get Retin-A, Australia, uk, us, usa, says that "That ridiculous story has been circulating for decades", but this is the first I've heard of it, buy no prescription Retin-A online. My Retin-A experience, As Turner says, "No reputable historian takes it seriously." (( Emery also said, Retin-A long term, Cheap Retin-A no rx, right before the clip linked, "There are two things that stand between Americans and tyranny: Our constitution and our 2nd amendment rights." I'm pretty sure that the 2nd amendment is, Retin-A no rx, Rx free Retin-A, actually, part of the constitution, Retin-A dose. Retin-A results, He may just mean "the fact that we have a lot of guns" but that raises the question of how other societies in the world with fewer guns have avoided falling into tyrannical oppression. Or maybe he means that American culture is so likely to become politically oppressive that special protections are necessary..., herbal Retin-A. Buy Retin-A Without Prescription, never mind. Order Retin-A online overnight delivery no prescription, ))

Pittsburg Sun 1941 December 7 Evening - Detail 4 - Pacific Which is No Longer PacificI'm not a specialist on Japanese military history, but there are a few points that are worth making, canada, mexico, india. Retin-A overnight, Japan did attack American territory directly, both in Hawaii and in the Aleutians, taking Retin-A, Retin-A wiki, and had substantial plans for occupying Hawaii if a second opportunity for assault presented itself. Japan also attacked the US mainland, buy cheap Retin-A no rx, Retin-A treatment, or "land mass," with sea-based and balloon bomb attacks.

More importantly, Retin-A price, coupon, Get Retin-A, attacking the US mainland wouldn't have advanced the primary, or even secondary, Retin-A results, Retin-A without a prescription, strategic aims of the Japanese military in WWII, and wouldn't have been seriously considered until after more important goals were met, Retin-A price, coupon. Canada, mexico, india, Japan's primary goal in WWII, remember, Retin-A no rx, Retin-A overnight, was defeating Chinese resistance to Japanese control so as to establish a stable, secure colonial foothold on the Asian continent, generic Retin-A. In order to maintain military production, Japan needed reliable sources of metals, minerals, oil, and rubber, materials that the United States had stopped selling Japan as part of the attempt to get Japan to back away from China, Buy Retin-A Without Prescription. Purchase Retin-A, The attack on Pearl Harbor and the Aleutian island chain was a bit of a feint, to damage US military capacity in the Pacific and to blunt any response to Japanese seizure of the Philipines, Retin-A brand name, Dutch East Indies, and other territories in the South Pacific. Those territories were valuable to Japan for their mineral wealth, oil and rubber: exploiting those resources would allow Japan to continue fighting the war in China.

Needless to say, any greater ambitions Japan had about Pacific domination were cut down by the loss of carrier groups at Midway and Coral Sea, which meant that Japan's ability to project military might across the ocean was drastically reduced. At no time after that was there any serious discussion of "taking the fight to America."

As far as fearing the well-armed American populace, instead of the American military, it's hard to believe that the Japanese military would have treated them differently than the Chinese, who waged both large-force and guerilla-style operations against Japanese forces with great vigor and frequency. I don't know what the distribution of guns was like in China before and during the Japanese invasion, but remember that China had been through 20 years of warlordism and civil war before the 1937 outbreak of hostilities, so there were certainly plenty of modern weapons and military veterans in the population. I'd also question the idea that guns were as common in the US as Emery describes them, but I'll leave that bit of fun for my American historian colleagues to discuss.

Buy Clomid Without Prescription

Filed under: — Jonathan Dresner @ 12:24 am Print

FallsofClydeLongViewI saw Margi Preus's Heart of a Samurai Buy Clomid Without Prescription, (Amulet, 2010) and the title alone made me cringe: just what the world needs, another kid book touting the putative values of warrior aristocrats. Clomid from mexico, But when I picked it up, I realized immediately that it was something else entirely (or almost entirely): a fictionalized retelling of John Manjiro's adventures as a castaway from Japan, real brand Clomid online. Clomid without prescription, Here's a story that's worth retelling -- though it's been done a few times already -- and which presents a very different light on Japanese history. I borrowed it from my friend (( who had bought it as a donation to a youth library based on recommendations from other children )) and discovered that I was right, buy Clomid online no prescription. Clomid description, Both times.

John Manjiro, also known as John Mung and Nakahama Manjiro, spent most of the 1840s on American ships and American soil, finally returning to Japan not long before Perry's arrival marked the end of Japan's relative isolation from foreign contact and trade, Buy Clomid Without Prescription. I haven't read any of the other books on castaways, buy Clomid no prescription, Clomid maximum dosage, though I've heard a number of my friend Stephen Kohl's panels at ASPAC. Manjiro's tale is more extreme, Clomid for sale, No prescription Clomid online, both in the length of time he was away and the depth of his experiences, not to mention the timing of his return, Clomid price, coupon. Buy Clomid from canada, When he returned he was interrogated thoroughly, then forced to remain in his hometown before being called to service, buy cheap Clomid. Clomid over the counter, With his experience, he became a valuable source for policy-makers, order Clomid from United States pharmacy, Order Clomid no prescription, starting with his native Tosa domain, passing to Shogunal service, Clomid street price, Cheap Clomid, and then as a promoter of Western learning. Buy Clomid Without Prescription, Manjiro's journey was well-documented, and highlights some fascinating aspects of mid-19th century global life, including the whaling industry famously chronicled in Moby Dick, early education, and the tensions engendered by Japan's isolation. Preus's handling of the chronology and substantive topics is straightforward and sometimes quite good, discount Clomid, Clomid dosage, including the racism Manjiro encountered both at sea and in New England. (( A really excellent summary of Manjiro's tale can be found here: Nakahama Manjirō's Hyōsen Kiryaku: A Companion Book : Produced for the Exhibition "Drifting, buy generic Clomid, Clomid used for, Nakahama Manjirōs Tale of Discovery" : an Illustrated Manuscript Recounting Ten Years of Adventure at Sea. Aside from the great pictures and introduction, buy Clomid without a prescription, Clomid brand name, the book claims that Manjiro was used as a kind of spy, eavesdropping on American negotiators (21) ))

My reservations about this book stem from the samurai lens which is imposed on a commoner's tale, Clomid from canadian pharmacy. Where can i find Clomid online, The title refers to Manjiro, who is described early in the book as having ambitions to become a samurai, Clomid images, Clomid australia, uk, us, usa, fulfilling the romantic and honorable role laid out in the classic tales. (pp, Buy Clomid Without Prescription. 13-14) Each section of the book has an epigram from Yamamoto's Hagakure or something called "the Samurai's Creed" (( that's before part one, buy Clomid online cod. Clomid dangers, In the bibliography, Yamamoto Tsunetomo's Hagakure is cited twice, purchase Clomid online no prescription, Online buy Clomid without a prescription, both the 1979 and 2008 translations, his name is cited backwards, Clomid coupon, Clomid treatment, and once misspelled )) and Manjiro's elevation to sword-wearing Shogunal retainer is treated as the culmination of a long-held dream (as well as being entirely unprecedented). It's possible that Manjiro really felt this way -- I haven't been able to find any reference to it in the materials I've seen -- but it certainly seems odd for a tale about a fisherman who became a proponent of egalitarianism and Westernization to have more references to sources on samurai than on village life or Meiji transformations, canada, mexico, india. Is Clomid addictive, There was one bit I liked, though: in New England, Clomid gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release, Get Clomid, Manjiro is demonstrating sword fighting to an American friend, but confesses to himself that he has no idea what he's doing, effects of Clomid, Clomid no prescription, and that he and his friends in Japan made up their own moves to go along with the styles of fighting they'd heard about but never saw. Buy Clomid Without Prescription, (p. 133)

There were a few bothersome details -- an anachronistic use of bata-kusai and the misuse of the word "sutra" for "prayer" on the same page (p, order Clomid from mexican pharmacy. 31) was particularly troubling and I'd have been happier if Manjiro's acknowledgement of Japanese whaling came before he expressed shock and horror at Western whaling (p. 45) -- but the errors were not fundamentally damaging to the historical context. The fictionalized characters and conflicts (p. 280) seem a bit overdrawn to me, though the issues they raise were real, Buy Clomid Without Prescription. The length of the book is something of a problem: though it's almost 300 pages, they are so sparse and there is so much illustration and blank space that the story felt quite rushed. Perhaps the fictionalized material stands out so much because it's quite detailed, whereas large sections of equally dramatic real life read like paraphrases of the short histories cited above. (( and the helpful material at the end really is fairly clearly paraphrased material. I understand not footnoting the story, but clear references in reference material seems reasonable, no. ))

On the whole, not a terrible book, though I think there's still room for, say, an kid-oriented abridgement of Manjiro's own testimony, with annotation by actual experts.

Retin-A For Sale

Filed under: — Jonathan Dresner @ 11:50 am Print

Atomic Bombing 50th Anniversary - Ground Zero Dome zoomThere's almost no new historical content here Retin-A For Sale, , aside from some biographical ruminations. Stanley Kutler's, buy Retin-A from mexico, Doses Retin-A work, reprinted at HNN, is the most historically interesting, generic Retin-A, Retin-A alternatives, highlighting the "all or nothing" fallacy in many debates about the use of the bombs versus other tactical options.

Milton Leitenberg's rejoinder (right after Kutler in the alphabet, Retin-A interactions, Retin-A use, by chance) recaps the "saved Japanese lives" argument, but misses something important, about Retin-A, Buy no prescription Retin-A online, as this argument always does. (( And calling this argument "a neglected consideration" is just absurd, low dose Retin-A, Retin-A trusted pharmacy reviews, given that I've seen variations of this argument going back to about 1947 )) Given that the Japanese did surrender after 2 bombs and the Soviet entry into the war, on what grounds does he think that a successful conventional invasion wouldn't have produced surrender, Retin-A online cod.

My memory of the first use of atomic weapons goes back to my 7th year, Retin-A forum. Retin-A photos, At that time, I was a rather precociously educated student of science, Retin-A results, Australia, uk, us, usa, so I was able to understand the workings of nuclear weapons and thus recognized the damage done by the Hiroshima bomb. Retin-A For Sale, My political sense wasn’t as advanced, so I wasn’t, at the time, susceptible to the questioning raised then and subsequently by involved scientists and then, later, by writers like Gar Alperovits. But my sense of simple fairness was distressingly violated when, Retin-A class, Retin-A steet value, less than one week later, on my 8th birthday, Retin-A mg, Ordering Retin-A online, another bomb was loosed on Nagasaki.

Even to a then 8-year-old child, Retin-A dose, Online buying Retin-A, it was clear that once was enough. There was no possible reason to justify doing it again, rx free Retin-A. Retin-A long term, The arguments about having to show we had more, about convincing the Japanese military, Retin-A overnight, Where to buy Retin-A, about advancing peace negotiations simply made no sense to me then, any more than now.

There are some odd errors, buy cheap Retin-A no rx, Retin-A pictures, which you'd think the editors would have caught.

But the Alamogordo test was secret: nobody outside of the scientists and military involved, kjøpe Retin-A på nett, köpa Retin-A online, Retin-A reviews, and up the chain of command, knew about it, online Retin-A without a prescription.

Buy Flagyl Without Prescription

Filed under: — Jonathan Dresner @ 4:49 pm Print

Buy Flagyl Without Prescription, A memorial plaque was dedicated in a park in Palisades Park, New Jersey in 2010 which reads

In Memory
of the more than 200,000
women and girls who were
abducted by the armed forces of
the government of Imperial Japan
1930's-1945
known as "comfort women,"
they endured human rights
violations that no peoples should
leave unrecognized. After Flagyl, Let us never forget the horrors
of crimes against humanity.

Two things struck me about this article from the NY Times. The first is in the headline: "New Jersey Town’s Korean Monument Irritates Japanese Officials." There have apparently been two official attempts to convince Palisades Park to remove the monument, Flagyl no rx, Taking Flagyl, presenting two very different approaches. The first emphasized Japan's past apologies and attempts to stage reparations as justification for de-emphasizing the sexual servitude issue:

The first meeting, Flagyl without a prescription, Flagyl overnight, on May 1, began pleasantly enough.., Flagyl pics. Cheap Flagyl, The consul general pulled out two documents and read them aloud.

One was a copy of a 1993 statement from Yohei Kono, then the chief cabinet secretary, in which the Japanese government acknowledged the involvement of military authorities in the coercion and suffering of comfort women, Buy Flagyl Without Prescription.

The other was a 2001 letter to surviving comfort women from Junichiro Koizumi, Flagyl no rx, Flagyl price, coupon, then the prime minister, apologizing for their treatment, no prescription Flagyl online. After Flagyl, Mr. Hiroki then said the Japanese authorities “wanted our memorial removed, generic Flagyl, Buy Flagyl without prescription, ” Mr. Rotundo recalled, online buying Flagyl. Buy Flagyl Without Prescription, The consul general also said the Japanese government was willing to plant cherry trees in the borough, donate books to the public library “and do some things to show that we’re united in this world and not divided,” Mr. Taking Flagyl, Rotundo said. But the offer was contingent on the memorial’s removal.


The second approach was a cavalcade of denialist arguments:

The second delegation..., Flagyl price. What is Flagyl, members of the opposition Liberal Democratic Party, not only asked that the monument be removed but also sought to convince the Palisades Park authorities that comfort women had never been forcibly conscripted as sex slaves, get Flagyl. Herbal Flagyl, “They said the comfort women were a lie, that they were set up by an outside agency, Flagyl no prescription, Flagyl without prescription, that they were women who were paid to come and take care of the troops,” the mayor related, Flagyl brand name. “I said, ‘We’re not going to take it down, but thanks for coming.’ ”


Either way, the goal is to defuse the issue, either by "getting past it" or by historical erasure, Buy Flagyl Without Prescription. Where can i buy Flagyl online, Nothing new there -- both strains of argument on this topic have a long, undistinguished history -- but I can't help but point out that, purchase Flagyl online no prescription, Fast shipping Flagyl, logically and historically, they should be attempted in the other order, low dose Flagyl. Flagyl photos, (( "My client doesn't know these people, and was nowhere near the scene that day when he was provoked...." )) It is interesting to see the LDP still flexing its muscles, australia, uk, us, usa, Comprar en línea Flagyl, comprar Flagyl baratos, albeit ineffectually, and maintaining a strong nationalist line and revisionist narrative, effects of Flagyl. Flagyl recreational, I'd love to know whether the legislators went with the knowledge and permission of the consulate, or if this is a fully independent foreign policy they're pursuing, is Flagyl addictive. Flagyl blogs,

The other interesting component to this is the engagement of the Korean diaspora community. The Deputy Mayor of Palisades Park is a Korean American named Jason Kim, Flagyl coupon, Flagyl mg, and "more than half of the population of about 20,000 is of Korean descent, Flagyl street price, Purchase Flagyl for sale, according to the Census Bureau." Not only did Palisades Park take up this historic offense, but there is now a full-bore movement afoot to memorialize the comfort women across the US, doses Flagyl work, Order Flagyl from mexican pharmacy, aided not only by Korean American organizations, but also by diaspora Chinese like NY City Councilman Peter Koo, purchase Flagyl. Public Japanese opposition to these moves is, predictably, deepening the resolve of the Korean American community, which appears to maintain a fairly strong nationalist perspective of its own.


It's relatively unusual, I think, to memorialize atrocities committed elsewhere by others to others -- though the US Holocaust Museum is a noteworthy exception -- but migration makes interesting connections.

Buy Ampicillin Without Prescription

Filed under: — Jonathan Dresner @ 9:38 am Print

Buy Ampicillin Without Prescription, Not much of a post, given the nature of my frenetic academic life these days, but Alex Wellerstein's post at Nuclear Secrecy raises fascinating question about the WWII-ending atomic bombings: what if the Japanese hadn't surrendered after Nagasaki.

According to the documentation he offers, buy Ampicillin from mexico, Order Ampicillin from United States pharmacy, a third bomb would have been ready to go in a few weeks, with the likely prospect of about three more per month after that for the remainder of 1945, kjøpe Ampicillin på nett, köpa Ampicillin online. Ampicillin steet value, Given how narrowly the decision to surrender won the day after Hiroshima, Nagasaki and the Soviet entry into the war, Ampicillin treatment, Ampicillin from canada, and how elements of the military tried to forestall the surrender after the decision, it's a much more plausible (and frightening) discussion than the "what if we hadn't dropped the bomb" question, order Ampicillin online overnight delivery no prescription.

Filed under: — Jonathan Dresner @ 10:44 pm Print

Buy Biaxin Without Prescription, In honor of the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack on the US at Pearl Harbor, the Society for the History of American Foreign Relations has published a series of essays on the event and historical memory issues; HNN has reprinted it (with a useful index post). Buy Biaxin without a prescription, John Gripentrog's "The Road to War" is a solid discussion of the political and ideological differences which put the US and Japan on a collision course.

Augmentin For Sale

Augmentin For Sale, The Asia/Pacific Journal, aka Japan Focus, has a fascinating interview with Heinrich Reinfried, Senior Lecturer in East Asian Studies at the University St. Gallen, Augmentin for sale, Switzerland, conducted by a Swiss weekly. "Sushi and Samurai: Western Stereotypes and the (Mis)Understanding of Post-Tsunami Japan" begins and ends with a credible historical and thematic deconstruction of some of the less helpful stereotypes of Japan: Japan as samurai state, Augmentin blogs, kamikaze, Effects of Augmentin, zen masters. I particularly liked the short bit on Herrigel

Nazi Germany made use of the samurai ideal of one who obeys orders unconditionally, who sacrifices himself on orders from above, Augmentin cost, who although not a Christian has a noble soul. Augmentin steet value, This is the ideological basis of Zen in the Art of Archery by the Nazi Eugen Herrigel, a book which has exerted a powerful influence over the years. Some Swiss still today regard this book as the open sesame to Japan, Augmentin For Sale. It is amusing to hear of Europeans with an anti-authoritarian upbringing who go to Japan to let a Zen master hit them should they doze off during meditation.

He mentions early 20th century ideas about national character, after Augmentin, and Saidian othering
we use Japan as a negative role model incorporating the opposite of the positive qualities we attribute to ourselves.

And he talks about the Cold War re-exoticisation of Japan as a land of Geisha and gardens, Augmentin maximum dosage, class-less capitalism. I'm not sure Henry Luce is as much to blame as Reinfried, nor am I terribly convinced by his analysis of Japan's response/role in the process:

Reinfried: Japanese are quick to realize what others see in them, Augmentin duration. They are eager to incorporate foreign images into their self-image, About Augmentin, above all, of course, those which are self-aggrandizing, Augmentin class. This is what happened during the Cold War when Japanese adapted and subsequently internalized the positive image that the Western world had propagated in order to mark Japan off from communist China. Augmentin For Sale, This self-perception enabled the country to reach the goal it had envisaged since the Meiji-Period, namely to “catch up to and go beyond“ the West. Augmentin australia, uk, us, usa, It made Japan unique but also nurtured its own brand of nationalism.

DM: There are those who maintain that Japanese just love playing the exotic role assigned to them by foreigners.

Reinfried: To some extent every country puts on a show for others, Augmentin reviews. That is part of the success story of many nations. We Swiss, too, like to pretend that we are cowherds addicted to cheese, Augmentin For Sale. Augmentin price, coupon, It is only when disaster occurs that we take note of the fact that we all live in one and the same world. Exceptionalist claims regarding culture then immediately fade into irrelevance.

There's an argument to be made there, I suppose, Augmentin dose, but there's too much going on here which glosses over complications: tourism, Real brand Augmentin online, nationalism, the extent to which Japan's self-image created or was created by foreign discourses, and the China-Japan cultural tension which was over a half-century old before the Cold War started, Augmentin from canadian pharmacy.

This is typical, Order Augmentin online overnight delivery no prescription, though, of the middle section of the interview, in which Reinfried engages in substantial myth-making and othering of his own, Augmentin forum. Aside from a well-earned swipe at foreign journalists shallow reportage, Augmentin description, there's a whole litany of chestnuts, conventional images of Japan, highly questionable generalizations presented as nearly-universal truths about all Japanese, buy generic Augmentin, without a hint of the critical perspective of the rest of the article. Augmentin For Sale, Most of them are about Japan as a collective, connected society. Generic Augmentin, For example:

  • "In Japan, even a disaster is handled in an organized manner. Japan is generally characterized by a very high degree of organization, buy Augmentin from mexico. This also applies to disaster management. Purchase Augmentin for sale, Japanese rely heavily on organization, simply because they do not see any real alternative to getting themselves organized."

  • "People in the Western world basically believe in their capability to live on their own, whereas Japanese tend to see themselves as part of a system, ordering Augmentin online. They do not see themselves as being capable of existing without an external system such as the state."

  • "In Japan, man and nature are not in contradiction, since in their view man was not blessed by God with a mind and then placed in Nature, Augmentin For Sale. In Japan, Australia, uk, us, usa, man and what we call Nature together form a unity. This realm can be either orderly or chaotic, bestowing blessings at times, herbal Augmentin, at other times demonstrating that its might cannot be controlled, Augmentin schedule, such as when it produces huge tsunami or rattles the earth. At the same time, the conviction that man can keep the dangers of Nature at bay with the help of technology is being nurtured, order Augmentin from United States pharmacy. Scientists refer to a disaster as an “occurrence.“ A disaster is the result of the fact that man settled in places he is not intended to settle."

  • "Religious beliefs are a strictly private concern. Augmentin For Sale, There is, however, a strong link with one’s ancestors, to whom Japanese feel very close. Order Augmentin from mexican pharmacy, Religious feelings do exist in the form of gratefulness towards them as well as towards fellow human beings in general. The notion is widely accepted that in a society based on division of labor, one’s existence depends precariously on one’s fellow citizens doing their jobs properly, get Augmentin. This, Augmentin brand name, in essence, is the least common denominator in Japanese religion."

  • "In Japan there is the view that man is neither good nor bad, but malleable: Just as water assumes the form of the vessel it is contained in, Augmentin from canada, man must always be embedded in a vessel, Get Augmentin, be it family, community or company."

  • "In Japan, public discourse constitutes mainly an exchange of factual information, Augmentin pics, not of worldviews or personal convictions. Augmentin no prescription, ... Japanese public debates on TV generally run in orderly fashion, Augmentin For Sale. In Japan, differences of opinion are attributed to differences in the level of information and not to ideological differences, Augmentin samples. We have behind us a long tradition of disputes between believers and non-believers. Purchase Augmentin for sale, In Japan, there are only those who know and those who do not. In case of disagreement, Augmentin pictures, people do not raise their voices to outshout each other but go home to recheck the vital facts. Augmentin For Sale, Saying this, I don’t in any way want to suggest that Japanese are unable to raise their voices in a quarrel if they feel the need."

  • "Japanese are not successful because they are ready to die for their company. Buy generic Augmentin, Japanese are successful because they think in terms of systems. The individual is of little importance in this dimension of strategic thinking, so these handbooks are misleading, ordering Augmentin online. In Japan, everything is conceived as a system. Individuals and their achievements are of secondary importance."

I could go on. The idea of Japan as a systematic, organized society has deep roots, and there are ways in which these statements could be construed as true, with caveats, limitations, and an awareness of the way in which these ideas serve the needs of the state and a kind of social order, Augmentin For Sale. What's most odd, I suppose, is the degree to which Reinfried fails to recognize that these are cultural tropes of great power as well as fairly commonplace images of Japan, both within and abroad. There's a saying I heard once, and can't find a source for, that man for man, the Chinese can beat the Japanese, but that four Japanese can beat four Chinese because they work together. (( I'm pretty sure I heard it about economic productivity regarding Japan and the US, too. If anyone can find sources, I'd be interested to see them. )) There have been movies (( Gung Ho, among others )) and books galore on these themes, not to mention a whole cottage industry of debunking scholarship on most of them.


This ended up being a very frustrating article to read, because it started out so well....

Temovate Cream For Sale

Lego Ninja 2011 B1 Temovate Cream For Sale, Mary Pope Osborne's Magic Tree House series is intended to educate and entertain by taking its protagonists to different times and places, real and mythical. These Scholastic books are mainstays of schools, libraries, and primary curricula, and some of the books have companion "Research Guide" publications for kids who want to know more about the historical, real brand Temovate Cream online, cultural or scientific background. Some of these books are aimed at early readers: the first 28 in the series are short, with short, Temovate Cream from canada, simple sentences appropriate to 1st or 2nd graders; after that the series shifts into the slightly more fantastical "Merlin Mission" mode, longer stories with more complex writing suitable for 2nd or 3rd grade students; the research guides seem to be aimed at 2nd through 4th graders. (( Check the Scholastic web site for official suitability levels. Also if you have any doubt about the fact that these are aimed at an education audience.... )) In these stories, Jack and Annie are given a book which, combined with the magic of the tree house, takes them to a time and place where they can carry out a mission of some kind, while learning about the site of their adventure, Temovate Cream For Sale. The whole thing is supposed to be an encouragement to learning, comprar en línea Temovate Cream, comprar Temovate Cream baratos, so to speak, showing the value of book reading. Twice in the series, Temovate Cream images, Jack and Annie have visited Japanese history: in the earlier, shorter work, we get nature-loving ninja and threatening samurai; in the later adventure, we get the nature-loving poet Basho, a magical dragon, Temovate Cream online cod, and threatening samurai. (( I could put a spoiler alert here, but how many 2nd-4th graders are reading this blog, Temovate Cream pics, who haven't already moved beyond Jack and Annie adventures. Well, my son wants to read this post when I'm finished with it, but other than him. ))

Temovate Cream For Sale, The text that Jack and Annie work from -- more Jack than Annie: he's the cautious, bookish one, and she's the impulsive, intuitive one -- gives an explicit frame to the story, and the book is never wrong. Because of Annie's impulsiveness, Temovate Cream no rx, they never get to read through the book carefully, but look up facts as they become relevant: the facts are short, context-free chunks of information that usually explain what the characters are seeing, Buy Temovate Cream from canada, and remembering these bits often comes in handy at critical moments. In addition to the books they read, they often get guidance from people they meet: many of the adventures feature a "local informant" who helps them navigate local custom and landscape and often is critical to their larger mission; usually they are supposed to return to the Magic Tree House with a specific item or piece of information. (( Missions are part of larger projects: the series is built around four-book units which share a problem and theme. Jack and Annie accumulate skills and credentials over the series, Temovate Cream class. This makes up for the fact that the individual books are very short, and acculturates young readers to longer works, Temovate Cream For Sale. That's the general idea, anyway. )) As with the books that bring them to these times and places, Temovate Cream results, their local informants are never wrong, either, though sometimes they misjudge Jack or, more often, Annie, Temovate Cream use. (( I suspect that most of my readers at this point are either familiar with the series, or have stopped reading. But I want to establish the authority of the voices: readers of the series are acculturated, Temovate Cream for sale, if they read more than one or two, to accept the authority of the guiding book and teachers. ))

The first Japan adventure is Night of the Ninjas Temovate Cream For Sale, (( Book 5, published in 1995 by Random House, with illustrations by Sal Murdocca. )) in which Jack and Annie return to an unidentified moment in Japan's medieval period. Here's what their book has to say about it:

  • "Very little is known about the shadowy warriors called ninjas. Historians believe that ninjas lived in Japan between the 14th and 17th centuries, order Temovate Cream from United States pharmacy. Both men and women were ninjas. Sometimes they fought to protect their families, Temovate Cream For Sale. Sometimes warlords hired them to be spies." (15-16)

  • "Sometimes ninjas held meetings in hidden mountain caves to plan secret missions." (31)

  • "Ninjas took orders from a ninja master. The master was a mysterious wise person who knew many secrets of nature." (31)

  • "The samurai were fierce Japanese fighters. Fast shipping Temovate Cream, They carried two swords to cut down their enemies." (45)

This is the most authoritative information Jack and Annie have available, and the vast majority of it is entirely incorrect. Ninja -- the black-suited nemesis of samurai living an independent existence in the hills, etc. -- are a Temovate Cream For Sale, figment of early modern imaginations built on a sliver of truth, reified by modern martial artists' pseudo-historical self-justifications and entertainment industries more than willing to dramatize and amplify the mythologies for fun and profit. (( And, about Temovate Cream, as with most Japanese nouns, the plural of "ninja" is "ninja" not "ninjas" )) The myth of hostility between ninja and samurai, though, Buy Temovate Cream no prescription, runs through a lot of Japanese historical fiction. (( And is almost certainly based on self-serving mythologies of post-pacification samurai )) (38) The idea of the ninja as a kind of eco-warrior seems to be a relatively new addition to the mythology: it's an interesting way of working "harmony with nature" into this Japanese narrative:

"Remember three things," said the master..."Use nature. Be nature. Follow nature." (38)

The nature-ninja turns the samurai into a kind of modernist nightmare, is Temovate Cream addictive. (( The picture on p, Temovate Cream For Sale. 46 is the only time they are depicted visually )) But samurai, described in the book as "fierce," are all bark and no bite: their armor is made of "bamboo" (45), Temovate Cream description, they wander around the woods at night with torches looking for ninja (37, 58), and they can be fooled by a kid in a hoodie pretending to be a rock. (48-49)

In Dragon of the Red Dawn (( Book 37, Scholastic, rx free Temovate Cream, 2007 )) samurai are also a threat, again in a distinctly modernist mode, because of the ban on foreigners. Buy no prescription Temovate Cream online, As their guidebook "A Journey to Old Japan" (7) (( Complete with pseudo-bamboo typography )) says,

  • "The late 1600s in Japan were years of peace and prosperity. Art and culture thrived. Temovate Cream For Sale, But it was a time when the country was completely closed to the outside world. No one was allowed to come in. The citizens of Edo were frequently checked to make sure they had passports." (15-16)

  • "Anyone who did not have a passport was considered a spy and punished severely." (16)

All samurai, Temovate Cream interactions, in this version of Genroku Japan, are police agents: the only samurai who are mentioned are either former samurai, like the poet Basho, Buy Temovate Cream online no prescription, or some form of patrolling security who are quick to draw their swords and challenge people who are out of place. (21, 42, passim) Basho tells Jack and Annie that "You must remember, seek harmony with your surroundings, my Temovate Cream experience. ... Observe the people of Edo and do as they do, Temovate Cream For Sale. If you do not stand out, you will not be noticed by the samurai." (25-26) Jack and Annie have to learn how to use chopsticks -- while eating makizushi, Temovate Cream natural, which it's a little early for -- under the gaze of samurai who are on the lookout for foreigners. (42) Oddly, the samurai they face suspect them because of where they are but not how they look, whereas Basho can tell immediately that they are foreigners; this may be part of the magic of the tree house, which also gives them appropriate clothing and gear and skips right over language issues, Temovate Cream brand name. (25, etc.) In spite of the fact that Jack and Annie repeatedly come under suspicion of being spies, the samurai questioning them are thrice convinced that they are merely poetry apprentices (22, Japan, craiglist, ebay, overseas, paypal, 48-52, 96-98) who do not need to show their passports, twice by extemporizing poetry. (( including, I regret to inform you, buy generic Temovate Cream, "Twinkle, twinkle, little star." Basho likes it. ))

Temovate Cream For Sale, In addition to their simple duties and simple-mindedness, samurai are part of a very simple political system. Temovate Cream alternatives, As often happens, Osborne has conflated the past and present, Shogunal and Imperial institutions. Here's what "A Journey to Old Japan" says:

  • "In the 1600s, the Imperial Garden surrounded the Imperial Palace in the capital city of Japan, Temovate Cream reviews. The city was called Edo (Say EE-doh). In the mid-1800s, its name was changed to Tokyo (Say TOH-kee-oh.)" (14)

  • "In the 1600s, Kjøpe Temovate Cream på nett, köpa Temovate Cream online, the military ruler known as the shogun (say SHOW-gun) lived in the center of the Imperial Garden in a palace that had hundreds of rooms." (17)

  • "Often the shogun's warriors traveled with him. They were called samurai (Say SAM-uh-rye)." .., Temovate Cream For Sale. "Samurai were excellent horsemen well trained in the arts of fighting. The code of the samurai was strict. Samurai did not show their feelings. They had great powers of concentration." (18)

There's a pronunciation error, taking Temovate Cream, the elimination of daimyo from the political picture, the bushido stoicism and assumption that all samurai are the same, and the confusion engendered by referring to the Shogunal keep by its modern title. Temovate Cream For Sale, Osborne carefully refers to the Shogun as "the military ruler" but doesn't explain the distinction between the Shogunal and Imperial institutions or note that the castle and grounds were not considered "Imperial" until the 1860s. Purchase Temovate Cream,

But the samurai are just an obstacle: the heart of the story is poetry, fire and magic. Despite their failings, Basho admits "Yes, the samurai greatly honor the art of poetry, buying Temovate Cream online over the counter. Poetry helps focus the mind. The samurai believe a truly brave warrior should be able to compose a poem even in the midst of an earthquake, or while facing an enemy on the battlefield." (61) Basho instructs the children in the art of haiku (( though without any of that picky stuff like syllables or turning words, Temovate Cream wiki, or seasonal indicators )) and shares the frog pond verse which he wrote just yesterday, even giving Jack the piece of paper on which the world's most famous haiku is written. (62) The guide book tells us that "Basho is one of Japan's greatest poets, Temovate Cream For Sale. He wrote short, beautiful poems that speak to people as clearly today as they did during the Edo period of Japan." (59) Some of them certainly do: Basho has about the same linguistic issues as Shakespeare, namely that he's one of the writers whose work shaped the early modern language, order Temovate Cream online c.o.d, but idiom and usage have changed over time.

Unlike Night of the Ninjas, this book has a precise historical moment. Temovate Cream forum, Or, rather, several precise moments: the frog poem was written in 1686, but the main action of the book focuses on the fire that destroyed Basho's home in 1682, after which he embarked on his famous travels, buy Temovate Cream online cod. Also, the cherry blossoms are blooming. Temovate Cream For Sale, Aren't they always. Anyway, Canada, mexico, india, on their first walk through the city, Basho notes the drought-like conditions and remembers the 1657 Meireki Fire. (( They also see puppet plays on "a row of stages built along the riverbank" (36) ))

"When the weather is very dry, the people of Edo worry about fire. .., online Temovate Cream without a prescription. Twenty-five years ago, during a dry spell, half our city was destroyed by a terrible fire. Thousands died." (30)

Probably a hundred thousand or more, Temovate Cream For Sale. Temovate Cream long term, But there's an up-side to fires, he says later:

"I suppose that is why the ancients called our fires 'the flowers of Edo.' ... After something is destroyed by fire, a good new thing often takes its place. Just as after the bleakest winter, beautiful flowers return with the spring." (89)

This is not, of course, the actual source of the "flowers of Edo" idiom, which is both relatively recent at that time instead of "ancient", and sarcastic rather than heartening. But Basho himself endured several fires that destroyed his home, and did take the opportunity to travel, producing some of his greatest work (including the above-mentioned poem) as a result.

Temovate Cream For Sale, When the fire breaks out, Jack and Annie join the citizens of Edo fighting the fires - no mention of the competitive firefighting teams, their uniforms or equipment, just people with buckets - and then draw on their magic to invoke the Cloud Dragon, "one of the guardian animals of the four directions. She has the power of flight and commands the rain clouds." (37) Though a very minor figure in Japanese astrology, the Cloud Dragon answers their call with a drenching rain.

There are a few interesting touches: yo-yos, which are a long-standing Japanese toy; hot towels at meals; sumo wrestling as entertainment, though it's unlikely that Genroku-era wrestlers would have been 400+ pounds. (38, 39, 46)

But as educational materials, these books represent a huge step backwards, a terribly wasted opportunity. According to the Wikipedia page, these books have been translated, along with most of the series, into Japanese. I can only imagine what the Japanese thought of them.
