The mysterious origins and distant past of the Japanese people are unveiled in this fascinating story that uncovers the journey of the ten lost tribes of Israel. Late in his life, Joseph Eidelberg began analyzing ancient traditions, religious ceremonies, historical names, haiku poems, Kana writings and Japanese folk songs, discovering thousands of words with similar pronunciations, sounds and translations between Hebrew and Japanese. These discoveries are history in the making, giving credible new information on the meanings of many unknown Japanese words, numbers, songs and cultural traditions - and this book is the first time that these remarkable similarities are combined into a single consistent theory. The Biblical Hebrew Origin of the Japanese People casts a new light on the roots of the Japanese people and its mysterious cultural sources. The book was originally published in Japanese, selling over 40,000 copies and has finally been translated into English for the benefit of a larger audience.
Academic Paper from the year 2013 in the subject Orientalism / Sinology - Chinese / China, grade: 1,3, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, course: Late Imperial China - Culture, Politics, History, language: English, abstract: 'Early modernity' is a concept of ambiguity in historiographic scholarship and has been a topic for discussion for several decades. Soren Clausen discussed the term in regard to China in his paper, Early Modern China - A Preliminary Postmortem. For Clausen, the search for a terminology describing an 'early modern China' emerged from the urge to incorporate China into a world history, whose importance he stresses in his introductory sentence: 'A world that is increasingly becoming 'one world' needs a world history' . What he also did was to recap the influence other historians had on the discussion during the 1980s and 90s, which are partially also addressed in the paper.

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject Romance Languages - Portuguese Studies, grade: 65, University of Birmingham, course: BA Modern Languages, language: English, abstract: '[Auto da Compadecida] constroi-se a partir dos textos mùltiplos que ... se mesclam.' (Santos: 1999, 265). Here Santos has described one of the defining characteristics of the text. Perhaps this mix of elements is a contributing factor to Sussasuna's universal popularity - the undeniably comedic elements, except those relevant only to a Northeast Brazilian audience, are certainly entertaining in any language. Maybe the 'serious message', which could indeed reasonably be said to form the 'heart of the play', is as well so universal in nature that it addresses any audience. In order to access this message, however, the audience must at first be entertained and subtly educated. I would argue that the comic elements, though obvious, are integral to this process, rather than existing as an inferior technique 'despite' which the moral can be communicated.
