Review: qBlouin's transnational approach is an especially novel, and timely, one; certainly, it is the next stage in Asian Gothic Studies and Blouin engages with (and in many ways, spearheads) its discourse. Blouin's research, coupled with his relatively untrodden line of inquiry, makes this a valuable supplementary work in graduate seminars and for upper-division undergraduate courses.q - John Edgar Browning, Arthur A. Schomburg Fellow, Department of Transnational Studies, University at Buffalo, SUNY, USA and co-editor of Speaking of Monsters: A Teratological Anthology and The Forgotten Writings of Bram StokerThis constructed locale, furnished with consumer products ranging from home dAccor to popular fiction, served as a canvas for ... excesses of what constitutes Japan.1 Various scholars recognize the convergence of gender and the Japan Idea.
