Screening Enlightenment

During the six-and-a-half-year occupation of Japan (1945–1952), U.S. film studios—in close coordination with Douglas MacArthur's Supreme Command for the Allied Powers—launched an ambitious campaign to extend their power and influence in a historically rich but challenging film market. In this far-reaching "enlightenment campaign," Hollywood studios disseminated more than six hundred films to theaters, earned significant profits, and showcased the American way of life as a political, social, and cultural model for the war-shattered Japanese population. In Screening Enlightenment, Hiroshi Kitamura shows how this expansive attempt at cultural globalization helped transform Japan into one ...

The Sky Crawlers: Episode 2, Episode 3

I am still a child. At times, my right hand kills humans. Instead of that. I would probably let someone’s right hand kill me. "Kildren" (children who are capable of living eternally in adolescence) aviate their fighter aircrafts and shoot enemies down every day. In order to continue to live as children, they have to engage in the war, to kill time. Some of them die in combat. The cockpits of aircrafts rocking in dark waves are coffins for the pilots. In the dead silence of the deep sea, what method of death would those painfully pure-hearted ones wish for? This is the second installment of "The Sky Crawlers", which the whole world has been craving for. The story soars skyward into the higher altitude.

The Sky Crawlers

Dr. MORI, Hiroshi, one of the most popular novelists in Japan, recognizes "The Sky Crawlers" as his masterpiece. This complete edition comes with Prologue, Episodes 1-5, and Epilogue. The animation movie version of the same title, directed by the masterful Mamoru Oshii, has attracted the global attention as well. "Kildren", who live eternally in adolescence unless they are killed in combat or commit suicide, innocently crave for being released from the curse of the gravity, and continue to ascend to the end of the clear blue sky. I can fall anytime. I can die anytime. With the resistance, we cannot fly. This work is the first installation of the serialized novels for the magnificent "The Sky Crawlers" series, and chronologically the last story in the timeline of the series. At the end of the book, "The Interview About The Sky Crawlers With Dr. MORI, Hiroshi" is also included.

Wind Resistant Design of Bridges in Japan

For long-span bridges, wind action is a dominant factor in their safety and serviceability. A large number of long-span bridges have been built in Japan over the past 30 years, and tremendous amounts of research and technical development have been accomplished in wind-resistant design. This book is a compilation of the results of active research and development. Wind-resistant design standards generated in Japan are described in the first few chapters. Then comes information such as design wind speed, structural damping, wind tunnel tests, and analyses, which provide the basis of the design standards. Wind-induced vibrations and their control of girders, towers, cables, and other features are explained with examples of field measurements. Comprehensive listings of Japanese experience in vibration control are also presented. Because achieving particularly dynamic safety against wind is still not an easy task, these data and information will be valuable assets for the wind-engineering and bridge-engineering communities.

  • Publisher: CRC Press

Human–Robot Interaction in Social Robotics explores important issues in designing a robot system that works with people in everyday environments. Edited by leading figures in the field of social robotics, it draws on contributions by researchers working on the Robovie project at the ATR Intelligent Robotics and Communication Laboratories, a world leader in humanoid interactive robotics. The book brings together, in one volume, technical and empirical research that was previously scattered throughout the literature. Taking a networked robot approach, the book examines how robots work in cooperation with ubiquitous sensors and people over telecommunication networks. It considers the use of s...
