AUTHOR

Vlasopolos, Anca

SUMMARY

No traveler in the nineteenth century became a greater catalyst of change than Manjiro Nakahama, a man revered in Japan and virtually unknown in the U. S. "The New Bedford Samurai" began his adventures as a runaway, illiterate boy from an island nation locked tight against the world, ruled by a strict caste system, and by and large ignorant of six hundred years of progress. By the end of his life, Manjiro had circumnavigated the globe five times, saw (and helped) his country change from the feudal Shogunate to a nation committed to playing a major role in global affairs, and imported from the U. S. to his native land both an enthusiastic spirit of democracy and the entrepreneurial know-how that resulted in severe ecological damage.Vlasopolos, Anca is the author of 'The New Bedford Samurai', published 2007 under ISBN 9781931201926 and ISBN 1931201927.
