The Citadel to receive 100 books about modern Japan
The Citadel has received a 100 Books for Understanding Contemporary Japan grant from the Nippon Foundation of Tokyo, Japan. The purpose of the grant is to provide American libraries with 100 books that are essential for understanding modern Japan.
"The addition of these books to the Daniel Library will assist both undergraduate and graduate students in the areas of political science, international relations, history, business and economics, culture and art," said Col. Keith Knapp, history department head and professor. "These books will significantly enhance Daniel Library’s holdings of books on East Asia."
The 100 books were selected by committee members from different backgrounds and experiences to provide an understanding of Japan from every angle. The newly established grant will provide books to 300 selected key libraries, universities and institutions in the United States. The program will eventually expand to offer books to organizations in Asia, Europe and the rest of the world.
The books are scheduled to arrive by the end of the semester.
