Book Display at the Library リレー展示

I was given the opportunity to recommend three books and have them put on display at the entrance to the library at Kōgakkan University 皇學館大学. The ones I chose below connect to my interests in Japan’s sixteenth century, lexicography, and post-modern theory. I don’t know whether students would be interested in any of these topics, but the works have provoked, inspired, and informed my own research.
