2 AKAHA, Tsuneo Japan in Global Ocean Politics. First Edition in dustjacket
University of Hawaii Press , Honolulu, 1985, ISBN:0824808983 
AKAHA, Tsuneo . Japan in Global Ocean Politics. Honolulu : University of Hawaii Press and Law of the Sea Institute, University of Hawaii, (1985). First Printing. Pp (8),[ix]-xii,[1]-224,(4). Text maps. 8vo, blue cloth. "National enclosure of the world's oceans is one of the most important global trends to have emerged during the second half of the twentieth century. Awareness of the real and potential value of the ocean and its resources and recognition of the growing s carcity of natural resources on land have promptednation-states to claim and exert control over wide areas of the hitherto u nclaimed oceans and their riches. Japan in Global Ocean Politics is a detailed study of a mighty ocean nation's reaction to the demise of the traditional ocean regime based on the principle of freedom of the seas and its adjustment to the emergence of a new order characterized by national ocean enclosure. Japan's traditional maritime interests, particularly shipping and fishing, defined the country's role in global ocean politics until the middleof the 1970s; its posture was reactive, and even recalcitrant, on most law of the sea issues. In 1976-1977 Japan changed its policy in favor of accep ting extended coastal jurisdiction for others as well as for itself. The author explains why and intricately describes the process of policy making that took place amid competing domestic and interna tional pressures. In accommodating its diplomatic, economic, and security interests Japan imposed a formidable task on its public and private sectors, one that was accomplished with innovative policy adjustments, particularly in the manner in which the territorial sea limit and fishery jurisdiction were extended." Chapters : 1. The International Political Economy of Ocean Management and Japan; 2. The First and Second United Nations Conferences on the Law of the Sea; 3. Japan's Fight against the Proliferation of Expansionist Coastal States' Claims; 4. The United Nations Seabed Committee; 5. The Caracas-to-Geneva Session of the Third UNCLOS; 6. Japan's 12-Mile Territorial Sea Decision; 7. The Soviet 200-Mile Fishery Zone and Japan's 200-Mile Fishery Zone Decision. With conclusion, appendix, notes, bibliography and index.

AKUTAGAWA, Ryunosuke. Hell Screen / Cogwheels / A Fool's Life. With a foreword by Jorge Luis Borges. [Introduction by Kayuza Sakai. Introductory note translated by Eliot Weinberger. "Hell Screen" translated by Takashi Kojima."Cogwheels" translated by Cid Corman and Susumu Kamaike. "A Fool's Life" t ranslated by Will Petersen. "A Note to a Certain Friend" translated by Beongcheon Yu.]. (Hygiene, CO): Eridanos Press, (1988). Pp. (10),xi-xx,(2),3-145,(3). 8vo, illustrated grey card covers with black and white lettering to front cover and spine, French flaps. Volume 2 in The Eridanos Library. "Thethree works presented in this volume are among the most signification expe riments in Japanese modern fiction. They combine the technioques of the novella, the diary and the impressionistic prose poem. In 'Hell Screen' we aregiven the Faustian tale of a court artist in feudal Japan who sells his so ul to complete a flawless rendering of Hell -- at the cost of his daughter's life and subsequently his own. 'Cogwheels', apparently completed on the very day Akutagawa committed suicide, is a diary in which the artist struggles with the fear of losing his mind. Fantasy has now become indistringuishable from reality as Akutagawa's magination loses control and the icily transparent figures of obsession spin through his mind like whirling cogwheels.'A Fool's Life' consists of poetic, exquisitely crafted jottings dealing w ith events of daily life: quotidian anxieties emerge in grotesque or distorted forms, mingled with elements of pure fiction, references to beloved authors and books, moral and philosophical reflections, parables and metaphors." - from the front flap. Very good. Ex-libris R.J. MacSween, with his nameinked to the flyleaf. 20.00

He used to tell his children "When you get to Heaven, look for me among the Koreans". That he would be there, and that the Koreans whom he loved would also be there, he never doubted, and neither can anyone who traces the story of his life and witness." - p.12.
