Japan - An Attempt at Interpretation
by Lafcadio Hearn
xJpAttempt.tif (42844 bytes)

This book accounts for the mentality, social ethics, and common values of the Japanese from a sociological viewpoint. A penetrating interpretation, as pertinent today as when it was written in 1904, this is an ideal introduction for westerners on how the Japanese live, work and think.
