Two Lectures on Nihonjin-ron / anti-Nihonjin-ron

I've stayed away from questions of "Nihonjin-ron" in the past simply because I don't care about what the average Daisuke [or Joe] thinks about what Japan is, but I was so taken aback yesterday by some of the comments from students in my class that I now feel obliged to rectify all their misconceptions... Here are two great guides to Nihonjin and anti-Nihonjin, from Meiji Gakuin University's Tom Gill: (1) Nihonjin-ron Lecture and (2) Anti-Nihonjin-ron Lecture。For more lectures by Professor Gill, click here
