TWELVE DOORS TO JAPAN.
BEARDSLEY, RICHARD K.; HALL, JOHN WHITNEY
THE TWELVE DOORS OF THIS COLLEGE-LEVEL TEXT ARE TWELVE CHAPTERS ON ASPECTS OF JAPAN AND JAPANESE CULTURE AS TREATED BY VARIOUS ACADEMIC DISCIPLINES. THE AUTHORS' PURPOSE IN CHOOSING THIS FORMAT WAS TO PRESENT INTRODUCTORY INFORMATION ABOUT JAPAN AND TO ACQUAINT STUDENTS WITH THE AIMS, MATERIALS, AND METHODS OF DISCIPLINES OTHER THAN THE ONE THEY ARE TRAINED FOR BY THEIR UNDERGRADUATE WORK. INTRODUCTORY CHAPTERS TREAT FAIRLY CONCRETE, VISIBLE SUBJECT MATTER OR INVOLVE DISCIPLINES WITH A FAMILIAR SCHEME OF COORDINATES (GEOGRAPHY, ANTHROPOLOGY, HISTORY, AND LINGUISTICS). THE TEXT PROCEEDS WITH CHAPTERS ON MORE ABSTRACT ASPECTS OF TRADITIONAL JAPANESE CULTURE (LITERATURE, ART, PHILOSOPHY). CULTURE AND THE INDIVIDUAL IS CONSIDERED THROUGH PERSONALITY PSYCHOLOGY AND EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS. FINAL CHAPTERS INCLUDE DISCIPLINES TREATING CONTEMPORARY JAPAN (POLITICAL SCIENCE, LAW AND ECONOMICS). THE CHAPTERS ON JAPANESE LINGUISTICS AND LITERATURE WERE WRITTEN BY JOSEPH K. YAMAGIWA AND THE CHAPTER ON LAW IN JAPAN BY B. JAMES GEORGE, JR. SELECT BIBLIOGRAPHIES ARE APPENDED TO ENCOURAGE STUDENT USE OF OUTSIDE READING MATERIALS. THIS TEXT IS PUBLISHED BY MCGRAW-HILL BOOK COMPANY, NEW YORK, AND COSTS $9.95. (JD)
