All too often landmark works of scholarship are allowed to go out of print or become so expensive that they cannot be used in the undergraduate classroom. Michigan Classics in Japanese Studies is designed to remedy the situation by making works of lasting value available again in attractive, reasonably priced, uniform paperback editions. We continue to add titles, and, thus, if you have favorite works you would like to see included, please let us know.
Center for Japanese Studies
The Publications Program of the Center for Japanese Studies at the University of Michigan publishes research on Japan by scholars around the world. Works currently appear in print in three series (Michigan Monograph Series in Japanese Studies, Michigan Papers in Japanese Studies, and Michigan Classics in Japanese Studies) and as nonseries publications. Center books have been reviewed in The New York Times, The Times Literary Supplement, Publishers Weekly, and World Literature Today, as well as in all the major journals on Japanese and Asian studies. Over one hundred universities and colleges have adopted Center titles as textbooks for classes on Japanese language, literature, and culture. The Center also publishes materials of special interest to industry, government, and the general public. The Center published its first book in 1950.
