An unforgettable memoir of the horrors suffered by a Japanese family trapped in Changchun, China, at the end of WW2
The second volume in this fun, comic-style series that explores China's transition from the Three Kingdoms to the Tang Dynasty.
Japanese characters served up with histories and cultural clues to help you decorate your skin/body/life with just the right word!
Thirty years after its first publication, Womansword remains a timely, provocative work on how words reflect on female roles in modern Japan. Short, lively essays offer linguistic, sociological, and historical insight into issues central to the lives of women everywhere: identity, girlhood, marriage, motherhood, work, sexuality, and aging. A new introduction shows how things have—and haven't—changed.
