[NOTICE] Annual Donation Postponement

Given the current state of affairs worldwide regarding COVID-19, we have decided to postpone the annual donation of JAPAN LIBRARY titles. Typically, the books are sent out from Japan around the end of March each year.

[NOTICE] Event Cancellations

JAPAN LIBRARY titles are exhibited at multiple conferences every year. Two of which are the Association for Asian Studies (AAS) conference and the International Studies Association (ISA) conference, both held annually in a major city in America or Canada.

2020 Lineup

After countless hours of translation, editing, proofreading, and fine tuning; the lineup for the 2020 series has finally come together. The following thirteen titles will be published by JPIC while the last two titles are being published in cooperation with University of Michigan Press and Lynne Rienner Publishers respectively.
