BookNotes Speaker Series

Since August 2004, Good Day Books has hosted BookNotes, a series of presentations on Sunday evenings by the authors of books about Japan, past or present, and Japanese, famous or obscure. To be admitted to a BookNotes presentation by an author, a prospective member of the audience must purchase from Good Day Books a new copy of the book on which the author's presentation will be based. Each BookNotes presentation to date has been followed by a lively question-and-answer session and a book signing.


Prof. Keene signing a copy of So Lovely a Country Will Never Perish after his BookNotes presentation in August 2010

A presentation by a well-known author (for example, Donald Keene's presentation on So Lovely Country Will Never Perish) or a presentation on a topical subject (for example, Akihiko Matsutani's presentation on Shrinking Population Economics) is typically sold out well before the date of the presentation. Seating is limited and is offered on a first-come-first-served basis. Please contact Good Day Books before the date of a BookNotes presentation to learn whether seats are still available for that presentation.

Richard J. Samuels is Ford International Professor of Political Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Director of MIT's Center for International Studies, and Founding Director of the MIT Japan Program. In 2001 he became Chairman of the Japan-US Friendship Commission, an independent Federal grant-making agency that supports Japanese studies and policy-oriented research in the US. In 2005, Professor Samuels was elected a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Professor Samuels served as Head of the MIT Department of Political Science from 1992 to 1997 and as Vice-Chairman of the Committee on Japan of the National Research Council until 1996. Grants from the Fulbright Commission, the Abe Fellowship Fund, the National Science Foundation, and the Smith Richardson Foundation, have supported eight years of field research in Japan.

Professor Samuels's book, Machiavelli's Children: Leaders and Their Legacies in Italy and Japan (Cornell Univ. Press, 2003), a comparative political and economic history of political leadership in Italy and Japan, won the 2003 Marraro prize from the Society for Italian Historical Studies and the 2004 Jervis-Schroeder Prize for the best book in International History and Politics, awarded annually by the International History and Politics section of the American Political Science Association. His book 'Rich Nation, Strong Army': National Security and the Technological Transformation of Japan (Cornell Univ. Press, 1994) won the 1996 John Whitney Hall Prize of the Association of Asian Studies and the 1996 Arisawa Memorial Prize of the Association of American University Presses. His book The Business of the Japanese State: Energy Markets in Comparative and Historical Perspective (Cornell Univ. Press, 1988) received the Masayoshi Ohira Memorial Prize. In 1983, Princeton Univ. Press published his book Politics of Regional Policy in Japan.

To attend Richard Samuels's BookNotes presentation on Japan's response to the 3.11 disasters, you must buy a copy of 3.11: Disaster and Change in Japan (Cornell  Univ. Press, 2013) from Good Day Books. Hardcover copies of 3.11 may be purchased from Good Day Books for three thousand seven hundred seventy five yen (¥3775) each, tax included, while our supply lasts.
