New from Acorn Abbey

The newest title from Acorn Abbey Books will be released on December 30. The book is The Outnation: A Search for the Soul of Japan. This is a new edition (with a new foreword) of the book, which was first published in 1992 by the Harvard Business School Press.

The author, Jonathan Rauch, is an old friend of mine. He is the author of seven books, most recently The Constitution of Knowledge: A Defense of Truth, published last June by the Brookings Institution Press. Dreux Richard, who wrote the new foreward, is the author of another book on Japan, Every Human Intention: Japan in the New Century, published earlier this year by Pantheon.

The Outnation is a classic in its genre, first published at a time when the world was struggling to learn about Japan during what we now call Japan’s bubble economy. The book’s first edition has long been out of print, and there was no digital version of the first edition. Acorn Abbey is publishing digital editions (including Kindle) as well as a paperback edition.
