This geuninely pioneering, amazingly erudite, and wonderfully iconoclastic monograph convincingly demonstrates that chinese vernacular literature represented a second major tradition within the popular literature of early modern Japan-a tradition that scholars have barely explored (at least since the seminal work of Awo Isoji and Ishizaki Matazo back in the 1930s), yet one that has left an indelible mark upon Japanese literary classics like Kyokutei Bakin's Nanso Satomi Hakkenden (Lives of the Eight Dogs of the Satomi of Southern Fusa, 1814-1842). And with the rise of China in the twenty-first century, Pastreich's ambitious study of the Japanese encounter with Chinese culture has tremendous relevance to our own day.
