Off Center by Masao Miyoshi

Book Description

In this study, Masao Miyoshi adopts an off-centre perspective - one that restores the historical asymmetry of encounters between Japan and the United States, from Commodore Perry to Douglas MacArthur - to investigate the blindness that has characterized relations between the two cultures. He moves off from literature to range across culture, poltics, and economics in his analysis of the Japanese and their reflections on the West.

As We Saw Them by Masao Miyoshi As We Saw Them, Paperback (September 2006)

In 1860, the empire of Japan sent 170 officials to tour the United States, the first such visit to America. Politics and curiosity, on both sides, mixed to create an amazing journey. This work relates the tale of entrenched assumptions, startling impressions, and bewildering conclusions.
