Following the reprint of Recollections by Marianne North, a leading lady traveller in the Victorian era, Edition Synapse has initiated a series of facsimile collections of travel writing by Victorian women on Asia in the nineteenth century. Victorian Lady Travellers in Asia is the first in a series of four collections of five volumes each by British lady travellers who came to Japan and China in the period of early modernization. These writings-together with many plates and photographs (which are reproduced here)-represent a variety of Western women's views on Asian culture within a fascinating period of westernization.

Modern Japanese Aesthetics is the first work in English on the history of the Japanese philosophy of art, from its inception in the 1870s to the present. In addition to the historical information and discussion of aesthetic issues that appear in the introductions to each of the chapters, the book presents English translations of otherwise inaccessible major works on Japanese aesthetics, beginning with a complete and annotated translation of the first work in the field, Nishi Amane's Bimyogaku Setsu (The Theory of Aesthetics).
In its four sections (The Subject of Aesthetics, Aesthetic Categories, Poetic Expression, Postmodernism and Aesthetics), Modern Japanese Aesthetics discusses the momentous efforts made by Japanese thinkers to master, assimilate, and transform Western philosophical systems to discuss their own literary and artistic heritage. Readers are introduced to debates between the unconditional supporters of Western ideas (Onishi Hajime) and more cautious approaches to the literary and artistic past (Okakura Kakuzo, Tsubouchi Shoyo). The institutionalization of aesthetics as an academic subject is discussed and the work of some of Japan's most distinguished professional aestheticians (Onishi Yoshimori, Imamichi Tomonobu), philosophers (Kusanagi Masao, Nishitani Keiji, Sakabe Megumi), and literary critics (Karatani Kojin) is included. Modern Japanese Aesthetics is a sophisticated and energetic volume on the process that led to the construction of aesthetic categories used by Japanese and, later, Western scholars in discussing Japanese literature and arts. This important work will be essential reading for anyone concerned with the formation of a critical vocabulary in Japan.
Modern Japanese Aesthetics: A Reader is a companion volume to A History of Modern Japanese Aesthetics (UH Press, 2001).
The theory of traveling waves described by parabolic equations and systems is a rapidly developing branch of modern mathematics. This book presents a general picture of current results about wave solutions of parabolic systems, their existence, stability, and bifurcations. The main part of the book contains original approaches developed by the authors. Among these are a description of the long-term behavior of the solutions by systems of waves; construction of rotations of vector fields for noncompact operators describing wave solutions; a proof of the existence of waves by the Leray-Schauder method; local, global, and nonlinear stability analyses for some classes of systems; and a determination of the wave velocity by the minimax method and the method of successive approximations.The authors show that wide classes of reaction-diffusion systems can be reduced to so-called monotone and locally monotone systems. This fundamental result allows them to apply the theory to combustion and chemical kinetics. With introductory material accessible to nonmathematicians and a nearly complete bibliography of about 500 references, this book is an excellent resource on the subject.
