Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »
Published by the Japanese government in 1937, the Kokutai no Hongi has been likened to Mein Kampf in that it officially dictated the peculiar national disciplines of the Japanese for the prewar and war years. Banned in Japan by General MacArthur and never published elsewhere, it is here presented to the American public for the first time. Anyone with a serious interest in Japan will find it a revealing document.
