1 - 2 weeks availability
Located at the northernmost end of Honshu, Aomori Prefecture is one of the few remaining undiscovered areas of Japan. In A Year With the Local Newspaper, Professor Anthony Rausch of Hirosaki University presents a year of life in Aomori, in a book both accessible and academic. Rausch has selected, edited, translated and grouped a year's worth of articles from a local Aomori newspaper into nine chapters that describe Aomori and provide for analysis of the prefecture on the basis of two contemporary sociological themes, peripherality and revitalization.
Anthony S. Rausch is a Lecturer at Hirosaki National University.
