Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko( Book )

4 editions published between 1982 and 1998 in Japanese and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This story, set on an Indian reservation just after World War II, concerns the return home of a war-weary Laguna Pueblo young man. Tayo, a young Native American, has been a prisoner of the Japanese during World War II, and the horrors of captivity have almost eroded his will to survive. His return to the Laguna Pueblo reservation only increases his feeling of estrangement and alienation. While other returning soldiers find easy refuge in alcohol and senseless violence, Tayo searches for another kind of comfort and resolution. Tayo's quest leads him back to the Indian past and its traditions, to beliefs about witchcraft and evil, and to the ancient stories of his people. The search itself becomes a ritual, a curative ceremony that defeats the most virulent of afflictions-despair. "Demanding but confident and beautifully written" (Boston Globe), this is the story of a young Native American returning to his reservation after surviving the horrors of captivity as a prisoner of the Japanese during World War II. Drawn to his Indian past and its traditions, his search for comfort and resolution becomes a ritual--a curative ceremony that defeats his despair

Dictionary of symbols and imagery by Ad de Vries( Book )

2 editions published between 1984 and 1988 in Japanese and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dictionary supplies associations which have been evoked by certain words, signs, etc. in Western civilization in the past, and which may float to the surface again tomorrow; for however 'daringly new' a modern use of imagery may look, it generally appears to have roots in what has been said and done in the past. No fine distinctions have been made between symbols (in the limited sense), allegories, metaphors, signs, types, images, etc. (not to mention 'ascending' and 'descending' symbols), since such subtle distinctions, however sensible from a scientific point of view, are useless to a person struggling with the deeper comprehension (and thus appreciation) of a particular 'symbol'

The Malcolm X encyclopedia by Robert L Jenkins( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in Japanese and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using the Nation of Islam as a vehicle, but largely through his own dedication, energy, and intelligence Malcolm X became an indefatigable leader of African Americans during the 1960s. This expansive volume examines one of the most controversial and heroic figures of the 20th century. Over 500 essays discuss how Malcolm X affected the world in which he lived and how the influence of people, issues, and events shaped his development as an international figure." "With more than 70 contributors from black studies, history, political science, sociology, philosophy, education, journalism, and psychology, the Encyclopedia combines the knowledge of a precise group of writers. Addressing a major social, religious, and political figure through their own disciplines, these authors flesh out both the diversity and the complexity of the world that defined Malcolm X."--Jacket

Mirror, mirror : images of women reflected in popular culture by Kathryn Weibel( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in Japanese and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Pollyana to Isadora Wing in Fear of Flying, from Mary Pickford in Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm to Ellen Burstyn in Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, from the 19th century tightly cinched waist and full crinoline skirt to Christian Dior's New Look, from the Ladies Home Journal housewife to the Cosmopolitan Girl, from Queen for a Day to Mary Tyler Moore, the myths and cultural norms for women have been defined, glorified and distorted by the popular images of women in our culture. Mirror Mirror is the first historical survey of these changing images and the motives and values behind them - in fiction, on television, in movies, magazines, advertising and fashion."--Back cover
