Bestselling author and food writer Debra Samuels uses her unique skills and deep love of Japan to make the cuisine of her adopted country attainable in My Japanese Table. Bringing a wealth of experience and a great passion for Japanese cooking to the table, Debra introduces the aesthetics and quality food that are the hallmarks of Japanese cuisine. She learned through her years in Japan that true Japanese homestyle dishes are easy to prepare once you master a few basic techniques. And now that authentic Japanese ingredients are available in most supermarkets, Japanese food has become far more accessible than ever before. The recipes in this Japanese cookbook, the result of decades spent teaching and preparing homestyle Japanese dishes, include familiar favorites like Hand-Rolled Sushi and classic Miso Soup and less familiar but equally welcome dishes such as Lobster Rolls with Wasabi Mayonnaise and Fried Pork Cutlets. There is also a chapter on the increasingly popular bento lunch boxes, along with a wonderful selection of desserts, including the delectable Mochi Dumplings with Strawberries. All of the recipes come with stories and cooking tips to help bring the sights, aromas and tastes of Japan into your kitchen at home. This Japanese cookbook includes chapters on: Basic recipes Sushi Snacks and appetizers Soups and salads Rice and noodles Meat and poultry Fish and seafood Vegetable and tofu dishes Bento Desserts and drinks

Nominated for the Glenfiddich Food Book of the Year Award, this timeless volume is the first and only book of its kind on the subject. A Dictionary of Japanese Food helps food lovers around the world decipher the intricacies and nuances of Japanese cooking and its ingredients. Definitions in ordinary cookbooks and standard dictionaries—such as akebia for akebi, sea cucumber for namako, plum for ume—can be inadequate, misleading, or just plain wrong. Richard Hoskings eliminates the mystery by ensuring that each entry in the Japanese-English section includes the Japanese term in Roman script; the term in kana or kanji or both; a Latin name where appropriate; an English definition; and, for most entries, a short annotation. The English-Japanese section defines important English food terms in Japanese and annotates those needing explanation. One hundred small line drawings make it easy for readers to identify everything from mitsuba to the okoze fish, and seventeen appendices address the most critical elements of Japanese cuisine, from the making of miso and the structure of the Japanese meal to the tea ceremony. Newly typeset and featuring a fascinating and informative new foreword by Japanese cookbook author Debra Samuel, A Dictionary of Japanese Food will continue to help both food lovers and visitors to Japan discover the wonders of one of the world's great cuisines.

In 1994, an American woman and her seven-year-old son embarked on an adventure that took them inside a culture where the older generation remains closely tied to the past, while the younger generation attempts to move into a present that brings unprecedented change-the culture of Japan. Carolyn Underwood is a single mother with a full-time job as an executive in a pharmaceutical company. In this position she tests every cultural norm held sacred by a traditional Japanese citizen. As she and her son find their way through the Kobe earthquake, an important message is brought home to them-that the ability to lean on friends, neighbors and colleagues, regardless of national or racial mind-set, connects us all under a simple category-fellow humans.

Until she crosses paths with Mr. Kurosawa, a red dragon who owns and runs the Japanese Circus Casino in Las Vegas. He insists Owl retrieve an artifact stolen three thousand years ago, and makes her an offer she can’t refuse: he’ll get rid of a pack of vampires that want her dead. A dragon is about the only entity on the planet that can deliver on Owl’s vampire problem—and let’s face it, dragons are known to eat the odd thief. Owl retraces the steps of Mr. Kurosawa’s ancient thief from Japan to Bali with the help of her best friend, Nadya, and an attractive mercenary. As it turns out though, finding the scroll is the least of her worries.

Janis Ian was catapulted into the spotlight in 1966 at the age of fifteen, when her soul-wrenching song ?Society?s Child? became a hit. An intimate portrait of an interracial relationship, ?Society?s Child? climbed the charts despite the fact that many radio stations across the country refused to play it because of its controversial subject matter. But this was only the beginning of a long and illustrious career. In this fascinating memoir of her more than forty years in the music business, Ian chronicles how she did drugs with Jimi Hendrix, went shopping for Grammy clothes with Janis Joplin, and sang with Mel Tormé?all the while never ceasing to create unforgettable music. In 1975, Ian?s legendary ?At Seventeen? earned two Grammy awards and five nominations. Her next two albums brought her worldwide platinum hits. But after seven albums in as many years, she made a conscious decision to walk away from the often grueling music business. During this period, she struggled through a difficult marriage that ended with her then husband?s attempt to destroy her, and a sudden illness that very nearly cost her her life. The hiatus from music lasted for close to a decade until, in 1993, Ian returned with the release of the Grammy-nominated Breaking Silence. Now, as she moves gracefully into her fifth decade as a recording artist and writer, Ian continues to draw large audiences around the globe. In Society?s Child, Janis Ian provides a relentlessly honest account of the successes and failures?and the hopes and dreams?of an extraordinary life.

​Social psychiatry is a multidisciplinary field analyzing mechanisms of mental health issues comprehensively to contribute to society using the findings. Those findings include biological, psychological, and social aspects and they are based on psychiatry and connected with a wide variety of academic fields, including psychology, sociology, law, economics, and religious studies. Epidemiological research in psychiatry is a field of study in patients with psychiatric disorder attempting to investigate causes, to develop clinical applications of the results, and to determine applications to health services plans for individuals and/or communities. They are both foundation for understanding biopsychosocial view in psychiatry but not many comprehensive volumes covering the topic were not available until now. This book is thus a unique, comprehensive reference with evidence-based approach to provide concise summary of researches for such as schizophrenia, affective disorders, psychiatric disorders in the general practice setting, and disaster psychiatry, especially for the case of atomic bomb diseases. The studies were mostly carried out in the region of Nagasaki, the prefecture experienced a nuclear attack at the time of World War II. Psychiatric findings in mental health problems among atomic bomb survivors and sufferers in Nagasaki has been established and Nagasaki is the only area that fulfills the conditions of the subject of the study of psychiatric epidemiology and social psychiatry which is going to be described in this book. This book provides a valuable resource not only for physicians and researchers in the field of psychiatry and mental health but for people who work for mental health welfare department.
