Overview

Japan (Barnes & Noble Digital Library): An Attempt at Interpretation by Lafcadio Hearn

Published posthumously in 1904, this masterful volume focuses on religion, from its early expression as ancestor worship, through more sophisticated native evolutions and foreign admixtures, as the prime shaper of Japanese culture.  The most influential single account of Japan written by a Westerner up until that time, it still resonates with readers and faithfully presents aspects of Japan.
