Page of Madness and Guide to Japanese Film Studies e-books

It has certainly been a long time since I posted on this blog. Blogging requires both a font of energy and a certain amount of time, and I'm afraid both were lacking in the latter half of 2012. I will try to do better in 2013.

Before saying goodbye to the old year, I did want to mention that the Center for Japanese Studies at the University of Michigan, which has published two of my books, has started to sell e-book versions of some of the titles in its catalog. You can thus now get e-book editions of two of my publications:

A Page of Madness (Michigan Monograph Series in Japanese Studies, Number 64)

My analysis of the conflicted history and textuality of Kinugasa Teinosuke's 1926 masterpiece. An explanation is here. You can purchase the e-book here

Research Guide to Japanese Film Studies (co-authored with Abé Mark Nornes, Michigan Monograph Series in Japanese Studies, Number 65)

Our guide to the resources useful when researching Japanese film, from the important books to the crucial archives. Here is the explanation, and here is the e-book link.
