From the publisher: "This magnificently imaginative and penetrating book offers a personal introduction to the Japanese today, their age-old culture, and their history. It is the work of a highly intelligent, richly informed, and observant Italian scholar, linguist, and photographer, who spent many years there as a teacher, as a wartime internee, and recently as a sympathetic traveler. Though presented in personal terms and partly in the form of a travelogue, it is cultural history on a very high level. " From the Wikipedia website: "Fosco Maraini (Florence 1912, Florence 2004) was an italian ethnologist, photographer, film-maker, mountaineer, writer, poet and professor. Perhaps best known for his photographic work in Tibet and Japan, Maraini also photographed extensively in the Karakoram and Hindu Kush mountain ranges of Central Asia, in Southeast Asia and in the south of his native Italy. He accompanied the noted Italian Tibetologist Giuseppe Tucci on two expeditions to Tibet (1937 and 1948). He has authored dozens of books and articles (many of which have been translated into several languages) , and taught Japanese cultural history at the University of Florence. He has had numerous photographic exhibitions in Europe and Japan. Maraini s work in Tibet and on the Ainu people of Northern Japan is of the utmost importance as historical documentation of two lost cultures. " FR3-1; 467 pages. N° de réf. du libraire 26123
