New book out on Japanese pop culture

Just got my copy of Japanese Visual Culture: Explorations in the World of Manga and Anime edited by Mark W. MacWilliams, published by M.E.Sharpe.

It has an essay by me "Contemporary Anime in Japanese Pop Culture" with pretty pictures.

Hey Giles,

How's the book? I wanted to take a look at it for review in the upcoming anime/manga issue for my paper. It looked really interesting.

I e-mailed the publicist for a copy... though that was a month or two ago. I'll call back.

I've just started it so I can't comment too much. However a glance through is enough for me to say it looks pretty good.
