Long time reader first time writer. I'm a postgrad student at the University of Sheffield doing an MA in Advanced Japanese. Our next assignment is to do a mini-annotated translation from a 4000-4500字 text. We're free to choose whatever text we like, which ironically has made finding something decent more difficult. So I'm wondering, have you or your readers read any interesting, hard-hitting, even controversial, articles or commentaries lately that focus on social/political issues or current events which would also make a good read in English?
Hope you can help,
