Join me as I host Mr. Joseph Essertier, an American who has lived and breathed Japan for most of his adult life. Growing up in Southern California, he got his degree in Japanese literature at UCLA and has since advanced to his doctoral candidacy, while living and working in Japan for over 20 years. Since 2000, he has been an associate professor at the Nagoya Institute of Technology.
Joseph has written for the Asia-Pacific Journal, New Directions, Counterpunch, ZNet and World Beyond War, the last group for which he is the Japan Coordinator.
With someone this knowledgeable and experienced about Japan, you too will become an expert on this fascinating and historically important country, after just one hour listening to me ask Joseph questions. As promised, please find below all the books and websites we talked about.
