斎藤環『社会的ひきこもりー終わらない思春期』の英訳の表紙Cover of my translation of SAITŌ Tamaki’s Hikikomori: Adolescence without EndForthcoming from University of Minnesota Press in March 2013
In March 2013, the University of Minnesota Press will be publishing my translation of a groundbreaking book on the subject of hikikomori (people who drop out of society and shut themselves away indoors, withdrawing from society for extended periods of time).  Originally published by the Japanese psychologist Saitō Tamaki 斎藤環 in 1998, this book attempts to describe and define social withdrawal and provides hints for how to help bring people in withdrawal back into mainstream society.  The book set off a firestorm of controversy in Japan and rapidly promoted Saitō to a position as the foremost expert on this condition.  This will be the first translation into English of this book.
