A hundred years ago, Lafcadio Hearn wrote 14 books relating to Japan, and was considered the greatest 'interpreter' of Japan in his day. This book shows how Hearn's understanding of Japanese society and culture continues to have relevance and interest today, but it is not a view shared by everybody.

A group of the leading experts on Hearn, from the U.S., U.K. and Japan have contributed to this volume. They explore both the positive and negative views of Hearn, who was at first admired by the academic world, then rejected (after World War II).
