Review&newline;&newline;&newline;&newline;&doublequote;The study provides a historical evaluation of Shimizaki's work and insight into the Japanese national concerns across specific cultural domains of the Meiji period in which he was writing.... Recommended.&doublequote; -- Choice
&newline;&newline;&doublequote;a strikingly original work of remarkable erudition that is also a rigorous theoretical practice...a book that speaks widely to literary and cultural critics and is also a must read for scholars of nationalism and Japanese modernity.&doublequote; -- James A. Fujii, The Journal of Asian Studies
&newline;&newline;&doublequote;Bourdaghs's study offers a fascinating interpretation of the major novels of an understudied but enormously interesting literary figure.&doublequote; -- Chia-Ning Chang, Monumenta Nipponica
&newline;&newline;&doublequote;His insightful and informative book has deepened our understanding of a highly influential but sadly still neglected Japanese writer....That said, Bourdaghs has certainly opened my eyes to ways of reading Toson I had not considered before, and he is to be thanked for that.&doublequote; -- Stephen Dodd, SOAS, University of London, Journal of Japanese Studies
&newline;&newline;&doublequote;In its originality and theoretical sophistication it revolutionizes both the study of Toson and the study of Japanese nationalism.&doublequote; -- Janet A. Walker, Rutgers University, Harvard Journal of Asiatic Studies&newline;&newline;&newline;Review&newline;&newline;&newline;&newline;&doublequote;This embodies a dauntless aspiration to appreciate the intrinsic relationship between social discrimination and the formation of the nation-state. In reading major literary works by Shimazaki Toson, a Japanese novelist of the early twentieth century, Michael Bourdaghs probes into the problem concerning the social and historical contextuality of the literary text and brilliantly describes the working of the national imaginary in the construction of the sense of national communality in modern society. He believes that modern literary texts serve to generate the images of concrete everyday life and, in this sense, should be understood as ideological utterances in which people relate themselves to larger national communities and live national identities. In its attempt to answer why racial, ethnic, and gender discriminations are so integral to the constitution of modern subjectivity, no book has been so successful in synthesizing the most recent Japanese scholarship on modernity and the theoretical insights of U.S. cultural studies.&doublequote; -- Naoki Sakai, Cornell University
