A Guide to Remembering Japanese Characters is the first book in English to explain systematically and in detail the true origin of each of the General Use Characters - the 1,945 characters prescribed by the Japanese Ministry of Education for everyday use. One of the main features of this new text is that the first 996 characters, officially designated Educational Characters, are arranged in grades according to the six-grade system used in Japanese schools. Since these grades are based upon a combination of frequency and importance, those who wish to study only the first few hundred characters will know that they are covering the most useful ones. It is hoped that A Guide to Remembering Japanese Characters will remove much of the mystique surrounding characters and thus make them more familiar, accessible, and easy to remember for the Western person, be they academic scholar, student, or general reader with an interest in Japan and its language.

"Lord God, I have tasted enough bitterness in my life." Sokreaksa was a young member of a large family in Siemreap City, Cambodia. When the country fell to the Khmer Rouge on April 17, 1975, his family was forced to join the exodus to the jungle villages. As the young Khmer Rouge soldiers consolidated their grip, the deaths increased. Anyone who complained; anyone educated; anyone an informer dislikes; all were "sent to study" - killed. Teenage boys were brainwashed into amoral, vindictive thugs. Finally the day dawned when the family was marched to a grave already dug in a jungle clearing: one by one they fell as the hoes hacked down. Sokreaksa, gravely wounded, was covered by the bodies of his brothers and sisters. His executioners walked away laughing. That morning Sokreaksa climbed from the mass grave. Hatred burned in his heart. Could he possibly forgive his family's killers?

Persecution in the News

India Christians
Forced to Flee


In India's West Bengal state, local Christians and missionaries faced death threats for their faith, according to Mission News Network. Fourteen members of a Gospel for Asia church were severely beaten and forced to leave their homes on July 10 [2008], after being accused of forcing conversions and bringing an illness on the village. The mob threatened to kill the believers if they remained in the village. Village leader Negesh Rai brought the matter to the attention of local police, which led to calls for his resignation by protesting villagers. On July 16, the believers were removed to a different area for safety.
