Crossing State Lines: An American Renga


Crossing State Lines: An American Renga


$27


A collaborative poem about America, from fifty-four of our best poets Crossing State Lines: An American Renga is a poetic relay race across the continent: fifty-four poets responding to ideas of Americaand to each other. This is a collaborative journey of impressionsfrom the election and inauguration of President Obama, through foreclosures, job losses, chords of country music, and bombs in Baghdad, to a poet-soldier’s rifle-sight in Afghanistan. The renga itself, in the ancient tradition of Japanese linked verse, provides the form of this historic conversation among the poets, as they meditate, within ten lines, on a moment in America. Crossing State Lines begins with Robert Pinsky’s recounting of a line of poetry by Lincoln as fall deepens and “maples / kindle in the East,” and ends some five hundred lines later, with Robert Hass’s “greeny April” on the Pacific coast. All proceeds from sales go to America: Now and Here.

Grammar and Vocabulary Mistakes: Funny English 1 (REMIX)


$0.99


Grammar and Vocabulary Mistakes: Funny English 1: REMIX” is an alternate version of the bestselling “Funny English.” The grammar mistakes are the same, but each mistake is illustrated through a different dialog. (“Funny English” is a “number one bestseller” at Amazon Japan in the “Western books” (Yosho) section of the Kindle Store in the categories of “Entertainment > Humor,” “Nonfiction > Education > Language Instruction,” and “Reference > Foreign Languages” categories.) Here are the 10 funny mistakes from the table of contents: NUMBER ONE: “You had better drink this sake.” NUMBER TWO: “Overtime is troublesome.” NUMBER THREE: “Can you eat shrimp?” NUMBER FOUR: “Teach me the page.” NUMBER FIVE: “I’ll bring a carton of beer.” NUMBER SIX: “The thunder blinded me.” NUMBER SEVEN: “What’s a full mark?” NUMBER EIGHT: “Did you eat during you were in training?” NUMBER NINE: “It’s service time now.” NUMBER TEN: “Do you like cat?” The “Funny English” series includes over 200 funny mistakes that Japanese make when speaking English. Each book in this series contains 10 or more funny mistakes that Japanese commonly make, as well as corrections and explanations of the mistake. The next books in the series will be “Funny English 1-2-3: REMIX” and “Funny English 4-5-6: REMIX,” which will contain 30 funny mistakes each. “Funny English 1-2-3: REMIX” will be available in December 2015 and “Funny English 4-5-6: REMIX” will be available in December 2015 or January 2016. “Funny English” will improve your English by helping you eliminate all the most common mistakes that Japanese make when speaking English. Many of these mistakes are still taught to schoolchildren and secondary students in Japan. Japanese-English dictionaries also teach some of these mistakes by translating ordinary Japanese into stiff, outdated English that is no longer used in speaking. (Other non-English speakers will also benefit from this series as their mistakes are often the same as those made by Japanese.) The

Kansei/ Affective Engineering/ Innovations of Kansei Engineering


$168.44


MAC or PC? Kindle or Sony ereader? Droid, iPhone, or BlackBerry? Customers often find it hard to distinguish between products due to functional equivalency. They will, therefore, base their decisions on subjective factors. A powerful consumer oriented technology for product development, Kansei or Affective engineering translates customer’s feelings into concrete product parameters. Developed in the early 70s in Japan, and now popular among Japanese companies, the method spread to the US in the middle of the 90s. However, cultural differences may have prevented the method to enfold its whole potential. Written by, Mitsuo Nagamachi, the founder of the technology, this two-volume set, Kansei Engineering, provides the background and history of Kansei Engineering and demonstrates how to use it in each stage. It describes how to survey consumer feeling by psychological and or psycho-physiological measurement; and then, the survey data are analyzed using statistical techniques; finally, the analyzed data are transferred to design domain through engineering and technology.

Montana’s Home Front During World War II, 2nd ed.


$4.99


This compelling account of Montana’s contribution to the war effort covers personal stories, local politics, industry, agriculture, education, sports, and social life during the upheaval of a world-wide conflict. This is the tale of ordinary citizens who came together to support their sons and daughters overseas, and the tens of thousands of residents who left the Treasure State to serve their country in the military and defense plants. Those who remained planted Victory Gardens, purchased record amounts of war bonds, and endured the hardships brought about by war-time shortages and rationing. This highly-readable account is the most comprehensive look at Montana during the early 1940s, and the tremendous sacrifices made by ordinary people to support their country in time of war. Originally published in 1994, this Kindle edition of the classic Montana’s Home Front During World War II includes the full text of the print edition, but is not illustrated. Features: The training of the First Special Service Force “Devil’s Brigade” at Fort Harrison. The construction of Malmstrom Air Force Base and the Great Falls based Lend-Lease operation to aid the Soviet Union. The experience of hundreds of Italian and Japanese civilians who languished behind barbed wire at the Fort Missoula Detention Center. The hellish fighting encountered in the jungles of New Guinea and the Philippines by the 163rd Infantry Regiment (Montana National Guard). The terrors of night combat as the crew of the USS Helena battled Japanese ships in the treacherous waters near Guadalcanal.

The Ambassadors


The Ambassadors


$13.99


We think of ambassadors as simply diplomats-but once they were adventurers who dared an uncertain fate in unknown lands, bringing gifts of greyhounds and elephants to powerful and unpredictable leaders. In vivid detail, The Ambassadors traces the remarkable journeys of these emissaries, taking us from the linguistically challenged Greek Megasthenes to the first Japanese embassies to China and Korea; from Mohammed’s ambassadors to Egypt to the envoys of Byzantium, who had the unenviable task of convincing Attila the Hun to stop attacking them. We also witness the dialogue between Europe and Moorish Spain, and meet the ill-fated envoys sent in search of the mythical king Prester John. What Europe still thinks of Asia and what Asia still thinks of Africa were in no small part kindled in these long-ago first encounters. From the cuneiform civilizations of the ancient Near East to the clashing empires of the early modern age, Wright brings alive the men who introduced the great cultures of the world to each other.

The Book of Hallowe'en


The Book of Hallowe’en

SUN-WORSHIP. THE SOURCES OF HALLOWE’EN If we could ask one of the old-world pagans whom he revered as his greatest gods, he would be sure to name among them the sun-god; calling him Apollo if he were a Greek; if an Egyptian, Horus or Osiris; if of Norway, Sol; if of Peru, Bochica. As the sun is the center of the physical universe, so all primitive peoples made it the hub about which their religion revolved, nearly always believing it a living person to whom they could say prayers and offer sacrifices, who directed their lives and destinies, and could even snatch men from earthly existence to dwell for a time with him, as it draws the water from lakes and seas. In believing this they followed an instinct of all early peoples, a desire to make persons of the great powers of nature, such as the world of growing things, mountains and water, the sun, moon, and stars; and a wish for these gods they had made to take an interest in and be part of their daily life. The next step was making stories about them to account for what was seen; so arose myths and legends. The sun has always marked out work-time and rest, divided the year into winter idleness, seed-time, growth, and harvest; it has always been responsible for all the beauty and goodness of the earth; it is itself splendid to look upon. It goes away and stays longer and longer, leaving the land in cold and gloom; it returns bringing the long fair days and resurrection of spring. A Japanese legend tells how the hidden sun was lured out by an image made of a copper plate with saplings radiating from it like sunbeams, and a fire kindled, dancing, and prayers; and round the earth in North America the Cherokees believed they brought the sun back upon its northward path by the same means of rousing its curiosity, so that it would come out to see its counterpart and find out what was going on. All the more important church festivals are survivals of old rites to the sun. “How many times the Church has decanted the new wine

In the story, Taki is an orphaned boy brought into the Imperial family by Emperor Meiji and his wife, eventually becoming a close friend and confidant of their son, Prince Hirohito, who will one day take the reins of the Imperial Throne. In his friendship with the Prince, they travel the world together, but Taki’s loyalty is tested many times to the extent where he is finally forced to tell the Prince the truth about his pitiable behavior toward himself and others in their circle.

As World War II breaks out, Taki is forced to join the Japanese army and conscripted to serve in Burma where he end up helping a group of starving and tortured British prisoners make their escape, and later is put through a grueling, incredible journey back to Tokyo where he finds his old friend Hirohito being used and manipulated by his Generals, where he is forced to intervene and put Hirohito back on the only path that will ultimately end the war and save Japan, itself!

The Laws of Evening


The Laws of Evening


$9.99


In this dazzling debut collection, Mary Yukari Waters, a remarkably gifted, award-winning Japanese-American writer, opens a window onto a foreign culture as she reveals the universal humanity of her characters. These uncommonly elegant and assured stories explore Japanese society caught between the long shadow of World War II and the rapid advance of Westernization. The women and children who inhabit these crystalline tales have lost husbands and fathers in the war and now face a world dramatically altered by Western influence. In “Aftermath,” a mother watches her son play American dodgeball and eat Western food as she desperately tries to keep alive the memory of his father, who was killed in the war. “Since My House Burned Down” depicts a Japanese widow, permanently displaced from her kitchen by her daughter-in-law, reflecting on the deprivations of wartime as the acidic, foreign smell of tomato sauce wafts upstairs. In “Egg-Face,” latent hope kindles for thirty-year-old, jobless Ritsuko when a matchmaker arranges for her to meet a handsome young man. And “The Way Love Works”explores favoritism in three generations of women when a Japanese American teenager returns to Japan with her mother. These finely etched portraits of upheaval and renewal, estrangement and reconciliation, provide keen insight into the Japanese experience and sensibility. A virtuoso collection infused with a warmth that invites readers to feel at home in a world that might otherwise seem alien, The Laws of Evening will undoubtedly place Mary Yukari Waters in the company of our most revered writers.

The Story of Peking Man


The Story of Peking Man


$14.6


At the end of the nineteenth century in China, amateur fossil hunters knew that a ready supply of fossils could be found in backstreet Chinese apothecaries. They were sold as ‘dragon bones’, to be ground down and made into powerful medicines. When the sources of these fossils were tracked down they revealed sites rich with the remains of horses, rhinoceroses, elephants. and the ancestors of mankind. Set against a background of squabbling Chinese warlords and the Japanese occupation, a team of Chinese and Europeans worked diligently in primitive and often dangerous conditions to uncover the origins of man. What they found was one of the most famous hominid fossils of all time-Peking Man. Penny van Oosterzee has written a riveting historical account of the discovery of Peking Man, from the excavation of one small fossilised molar to the mysterious disappearance of the fossils at the beginning of World War II. The debate about whether modern humans developed in Africa and then spread to the rest of the world or evolved in different parts of the world is an ongoing and passionate one between anthropologists and is always being reported in the media. Recent findings by Australian anthropologist Alan Thorne have re-kindled this debate world-wide. This story is directly relevant to that debate.
