Media attention and comments

To eliminate the "friendly and friendly, and criticism" as a critical mode of "academic, intellectual, interesting story," into one I had the pleasure of reading as "ambiguous" Japanese, great admiration. This book materials rich, subtle, deep observation of thought, the Liu Chang, especially its subtlety and not unilaterally, it is similar in the book is less, the chrysanthemum and the sword Ji Wu Ruth Benedict "can be". Especially in Japan this country and our relationship is too large, need to make people have a better understanding of it, in order to better deal with it. I think respect as an important contributions in this field. -- Zhang Yijun (former director of the division of the Ministry of foreign researchers as Chinese Meida) -- top think-tank Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, the author has lived in Japan for four years, the Japanese society have extensive experience and in-depth knowledge, deep psychological book hit the Japanese, unveiled its "ambiguous" veil. The suspicion and criticism of "the Japanese people's anti war" statement, is very much to the point. -- Mo Bangfu (LVRI Chinese writer, economic commentators) about two hundred thousand words "ambiguous" into my Japanese is so far only what the Japanese books. The author tries to rational non emotional description of Japanese, he raised the question: "although the deal China and Japan has played in the 2000, in modern times, and two times for the Japanese heavy losses, but in Japan the national Mount Lu really, do we really know?" I am very much in favor of this conception, and indeed has benefited from his narrative. -- Li Jiefei (writer, scholar) book from Japan to play in the modern history of the "ambiguous" role of complexity, and Japanese national character. Not only for our understanding of Japan is very beneficial, reflecting our own national character, there is a lot of inspiration. The author collected a large number of facts. Detailed and vivid narrative and demolish with penetrating criticism combined with analysis, is a perceptual display, and rational analysis of the book. -- Chen Juntao (critics) author was born in (the) fifty years, rather than the "war" of the witnesses, but can be argued convincingly that causes a state of ceremonies, the barbarity of japan. The author does not stimulate the national hostile thoughts, and scholars to look at the problem, he took the cross research and synchronic, combined with his personal experience, in-depth analysis of the ambiguity of Japanese, will consider the reader to rational, objective and fair. -- Wang Zhigeng (Professor of Nankai University) which is a rare books. This is not only because it contains about Japanese history and current situation of extremely rich knowledge, not only because the author has a large number of perceptual experience living in Japan for many years, is a good book, its maximum value is: has a hard experience and irreplaceable significance. -- Li Chunqing (Professor of Beijing Normal University) in the author's pen, "ambiguous" such a difficult even to say the topic not only become concrete, amiable, into doctrinal clear and close to the interest, but also provides us with a penetrating the correct observation, Japan's new perspective. Perhaps do things carelessly, seeking not divergent thinking induced, perhaps the single political perspective way limit, is it just shows us on the Japanese national "ambiguous" root for lack of understanding. Relying on this point, we also want to "ambiguous" Japanese sit up and take notice. -- Wu Xiuming (Professor of Zhejiang University)

"Ambiguous" Japanese after Huang Zunxian, Dai Jitao, also a part of Japanese culture theory China scholars write masterpiece! In fact, every Chinese heart have a Japan complex, whether you love it or hate it. Japan is a country is a mystery, the Japanese national character is a mystery. Now, some people want to solve this mystery. In order to solve this mystery, Mr. Li Zhaozhong chose a rather new and unique perspective, from the analysis of Japan plays in the modern history of "ambiguous" role of complexity, let the reader from the spy in the Japanese national character. In the process of solving the mystery, Mr. Li Zhaozhong is not content to provide ready-made conclusions and answers directly to the readers in the book, but by a lot of facts (direct and indirect), and according to their own in Japan nearly four years of life experience and personal feelings, meticulous vivid narrative and eloquence but not without and be fair and reasonable analysis, from which the reader naturally gives conclusions and answers. Chinese has two thousand years history of contacts with Japan, in modern times also eaten Japanese Kui, logically speaking, Chinese should understand Japanese, but the fact is not true. Today, Chinese intellectual circles about Japan, copiously quote authoritative works, is still Benedict's "the chrysanthemum and the sword", as if a big one Chinese nobody understand japanese. In the recent twenty years, along with the Chinese high-speed economic development, national strength, Chinese on Japanese ignored or despised become aggravated, in "double cover in Greater China" and "western" the truth, Japan looks more and more distant from us. In the Sino Japanese relations HERSHEY'S bad, ups and downs in the background, "ambiguous" for the reader to understand the Japanese Japanese and how to look at the Japanese, with a unique and compelling evidence and vision for Chinese; correct understanding of Japanese and faces up to the difference of Sino Japanese relations and culture, provides content and analysis demolish with penetrating criticism the. "Ambiguous" Japanese author Li Zhaozhong is a famous scholar China Academy of Social Sciences, his monograph "Japan passing" "can't see through Japan" "noisy mules -- Study and Chinese modern culture" have had aroused great repercussions, by readers of heatHot pursuit. "Ambiguous" Japanese very readable, author of the revision of the book chapter is different from the past, made an important adjustment, make snap, will be the main content and branches all deleted, compression of the nearly 1/4 pages, into the latest research results, and the text for further training. After this a thin plastic, the spirit of a lot, more outstanding theme, context more smooth, more suitable for reading. The Japanese "ambiguous" timeliness, just happened "Diaoyu Island bumps into boat incident" once again triggered the Sino Japanese relations crisis, Sino Japanese relations has become the focus of Chinese people. "Ambiguous" timely and Japanese, for readers to understand Japan, Japan will face will be of great help.
