Girl Reading Girl provides the first overview of the cultural significance of girls and reading in modern and contemporary Japan with emphasis on the processes involved when girls read about other girls. The collection examines the reading practices of real life girls from differing social backgrounds throughout the twentieth century while a number of chapters also consider how fictional girls read attention is given to the diverse cultural representations of the girl, or shôjo, who are the objects of the reading desires of Japan’s real life and fictional girls. These representations appear in various genres, including prose fiction, such as Yoshiya Nobuko’s Flower Stories and Takemoto Nobara’s Kamikaze Girls, and manga, such as Yoshida Akimi’s The Cherry Orchard. This volume presents the work of pioneering women scholars in the field of girl studies including translations of a ground-breaking essay by Honda Masuko on reading girls and Kawasaki Kenko’s response to prejudicial masculine critiques of best-selling novelist, Yoshimoto Banana. Other topics range from the reception of Anne of Green Gables in Japan to girls who write and read male homoerotic narratives.

"Shunichiro Kusaka plans to shape the future of the world. Using his intellect, charisma, and the family megacorporation, Kusaka speaks with pride of an Asian-dominated 21st century, based around control of oil reserves, in a vision that encompasses the "family" of "all Yellows"--from the rich, sedate Japan to the restless nations of Southeast Asia. Yet Shunichiro's own family, his own "strain," had to be eradicated first. It's first and foremost in his self-interest; when his father disappeared, Kusaka's bankers and elder directors attempted to back his half-brother Shingo for the succession, thinking he would be easier to manipulate. On a Malaysian trip, Shunichiro promptly framed Shingo for capital drug possession; believing him executed, he later moved to murder an old lover and her daughter who had ended up in the slums of Kuala Lumpur. But, through a quirk of fate, Shingo was not executed; instead he escaped and for three years worked as an assassin under the pseudonym Mayo, meaning "The Horse." Here is the second reason for Shunichiro winnowing out his "strain;" he believes it is dangerous, and that Shingo is an aberrant bad seed who even in childhood stalked human game. Betrayer that he is, Shunichiro may be right about his half-brother, who has won over the men he sent to eliminate Shingo once and for all. And with Shunichiro finding himself betrayed by his erstwhile partners in crime, his schemes may all unravel. The question is: who will tie the skein of "strain?""--back cover.

This classic four-volume series-from a pioneering ethnographer, first published in 1910-remains a foundational work of comparative mythology and religion for scholars and armchair anthropologists alike. Exploring the interconnections between myth and ritual in how and whom we may marry-as group marriage gave way to individual marriage-questions about religion and social structure became intertwined. In any case, this is a fascinating look at the social underpinnings common to all peoples around the globe. Volume II continues Frazer's ethnographic survey of totemism, here covering totemism in the South Pacific, India, and Africa. Scottish anthropologist SIR JAMES GEORGE FRAZER (1854-1941) also wrote the classic The Golden Bough (1890), Man, God, and Immortality (1927), and Creation and Evolution in Primitive Cosmogonies (1935).

When Hatsumi has to buy a pregnancy test because her popular sister Akane is late, Mrs. Tachibana's son, Ryoki, who used to bully Hatsumi as a kid, promises not to tell the world about Hatsumi's secret only if she becomes his slave.
