Hello Blog. Some articles I added to the Debito.org Publications Page recently:
1) “JUST BE CAUSE” COLUMN ONE FOR THE JAPAN TIMES
Very pleased with how this essay turned out–some good ground covered in 850 words. (And yes, that is THE onsen in the background of this picture). See “Director’s Cut” with links to sources at
2) ARTICLE IN THE JOURNAL OF INTERNATIONAL HEALTH
I was invited to contribute a little something following my speech at the Japan Association for International Health last October 8 (see my Powerpoint presentation for it here). It’s a very brief summary of my talk, in simple English for non-native speakers.
“Medical Care for Non-Japanese Residents of Japan: Let’s look at Japanese Society’s General ‘Bedside Manner’ First”, Journal of International Health Vol.23, No.1, 2008, pgs 19-21.
3) AWARD-WINNING ARTICLE IN THE NEW YORK INTERNATIONAL LAW REVIEW
This article was written not by me, but by researcher Canon Pence. He says it won an award (congrats!), which certainly helped his career. Glad Debito.org was of some assistance.
Pence, Canon, “Japanese Only: Xenophobic Exclusion in Japan’s Private Sphere”. New York International Law Review, Summer, 2007, pages 1-73.
Enjoy! Arudou Debito in Sapporo

RE Pence, Canon, “Japanese Only: Xenophobic Exclusion in Japan’s Private Sphere”
Typo on page 4, last paragraph “After plans for the museum became known” should read “After plans for the dam became known”
–Thanks. Hopefully the editors caught that. Debito
