Zum 100. Todestag des Autors am 9. Dezember 2016 «Liebe ist ein Verbrechen!» Welches Geheimnis quält den alten, hochgebildeten Mann, der sich zu solchen Aussagen versteigt? Sein Gegenüber, ein unbedarfter Student, fühlt sich zu dem rätselhaften «Sensei» hingezogen und besucht ihn regelmäßig in Tokio. Doch trotz des offensichtlichen Wohlwollens wahrt der Alte Distanz. Hat die junge Frau des Sensei, eine schweigsame Schönheit, etwas mit dessen unerklärlichem Misstrauen zu tun? Erst in einem elegischen Abgesang offenbart sich schließlich, welch unaussprechliche Schuld auf dem Sensei gelastet hat. Dieser an feinen Nuancen reiche Roman gewährt tiefe Einblicke in das Lebensgefühl Japans an der Schwelle zur Moderne. Erstmals mit Kommentar und mit überarbeiteter Übersetzung.

The great Japanese author’s most famous novel, in its first new English translation in half a century No collection of Japanese literature is complete without Natsume Soseki's Kokoro, his most famous novel and the last he completed before his death. Published here in the first new translation in more than fifty years, Kokoro—meaning "heart"—is the story of a subtle and poignant friendship between two unnamed characters, a young man and an enigmatic elder whom he calls "Sensei." Haunted by tragic secrets that have cast a long shadow over his life, Sensei slowly opens up to his young disciple, confessing indiscretions from his own student days that have left him reeling with guilt, and revealing, in the seemingly unbridgeable chasm between his moral anguish and his student's struggle to understand it, the profound cultural shift from one generation to the next that characterized Japan in the early twentieth century. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Formations of Colonial Modernity in East Asia

The essays in Formations of Colonial Modernity in East Asia challenge the idea that notions of modernity and colonialism are mere imports from the West, and show how colonial modernity has evolved from and into unique forms throughout Asia. Although the modernity of non-European colonies is as indisputable as the colonial core of European modernity, until recently East Asian scholarship has tried to view Asian colonialism through the paradigm of colonial India (for instance), failing to recognize anti-imperialist nationalist impulses within differing Asian countries and regions. Demonstrating an impatience with social science models of knowledge, the contributors show that binary categories focused on during the Cold War are no longer central to the project of history writing. By bringing together articles previously published in the journal positions: east asia cultures critique, editor Tani Barlow has demonstrated how scholars construct identity and history, providing cultural critics with new ways to think about these concepts—in the context of Asia and beyond. Chapters address topics such as the making of imperial subjects in Okinawa, politics and the body social in colonial Hong Kong, and the discourse of decolonization and popular memory in South Korea. This is an invaluable collection for students and scholars of Asian studies, postcolonial studies, and anthropology. Contributors. Charles K. Armstrong, Tani E. Barlow, Fred Y. L.
