APJ Subscription Drive December 2017

With tensions between the US and North Korea at fever pitch in the era of Donald Trump, with mounting conflict between the US and China, China and the nations of the South China Sea, and between Okinawa and the US-Japan, we believe that APJ is more important than ever.

We have no corporate, foundation or university angel, so our ability to publish relies heavily on our core supporters.

A matching grant on contributions of $100 and more (up to a cumulative total of $5,000) is in effect through January 1. Now is the time to contribute.

Your financial support allows us to provide APJ free to our 18,000 regular readers and thousands of others around the world. The journal is strong and growing. But we need support to maintain it free to global readers and expand our coverage.

If you value the journal, please go to our homepage http://apjjf.org/Subscribe where you can both subscribe to our semi-monthly Newsletter and contribute (tax deductible) via Paypal or credit card.

We need support in the range of $100-500-1,000 to maintain the site toward our goal of $12,000.

We're off to a good start with $4,200+ toward our goal of $12,000. Please help us now.

Asia-Pacific Journal: Japan Focus—Free Downloadable Course Readers!

 

NEW! The Asia-Pacific Journal: Japan Focus is pleased to announce the release of two new free volume-length e-book course readers.

In 2012, The Asia Pacific Journal: Japan Focus announced the start of a new initiative: volume-length e-book compilations of essays on selected topics with explanatory introductions by scholars.

These volumes are designed to make it easier for teachers and students to use the Asia-Pacific Journal archive. The volume editors have chosen articles from the archive that lend themselves particularly well to classroom use and work well as a set. All volumes have been peer-reviewed, in addition to the initial review process each article went through when it was originally posted.

The Asia-Pacific Journal is proud of providing educational resources suitable for classroom use.
The readers are designed to be especially convenient for students; the readers are available any time of day, are storable on a computer, searchable, and cost nothing to them.

Fifteen readers are currently available on the following topics. For a quick look at the tables of contents and title pages of each reader, please open the files below. The full readers are accessible through the second set of links.
