As part of the SOAS Translation Workshop in Japanese Studies 2012, my team of excellent graduate students and translators put in a fine effort to start translating the 500 page tome. This is a book from a major Japanese newspaper looking out over the last eighty years of Japanese history and analyzing the role media plays in the formation of history. The work includes extensive company archival material and key interviews with journalists involved in critical moments of 20th century Japanese history.
While everyone is graciously giving to Japan's Red Cross and other large organizations, let us not forget that many children are orphaned. To support their educational future, this special fund was set up in Yamada machi (where I first lived in Japan.)
