Inhaltsangabe: The River With No Bridge (Hashi no nai kawa) explores with outspoken frankness a subject still taboo in Japan: the intolerance and bigotry faced daily by Japan's largest minority group, the burakumin. Racially no different from other Japanese, over the centuries the burakumin have been cruelly ostracized for their association with occupations considered defiling. Spanning the years 1908 to 1924, the original six volumes of this novel trace the developing awareness of burakumin of their rights and dignity as human beings. Volume 1, translated into English for the first time in 1990, is a story about childhood in a burakumin village.
From School Library Journal:
YA-- In this first volume of six to be translated, Sumii creates a moving story of discrimination as seen through the eyes of a child, Koji Hatanaka, as he attempts to deal with his outcast status. He ponders the reasons his grandmother, mother, and all the other hard working burakumin are despised if hard work is so highly honored in Japan, and readers acutely feel the injustice in the segregation of three million Japanese solely because of their occupations. Sumii's story is also a unique social record of a traditional rural way of life in Japan during the early 1900s. Throughout the story, the threat of the rising totalitarian state and the encroaching modern age of industrialism are witnessed with the increasing emphasis in the schools upon reverence for the emperor and patriotism and the building of the Osaka Electric Railway tunnel. To add further authenticity to her narrative, Sumii has woven historical events and persons into her story. Wilkinson's translation retains the warmth of the Hatanaka family's struggle without weakening the strong statement of indignation against discrimination. Her introduction educates readers about the burakumin within Japanese society, and her notes offer an excellent explanation of the terminology, events, and people mentioned in the text. Both sections are invaluable resources for students of sociology and the social sciences. --Dolores M. Steinhauer, Jefferson Sci-Tech, Alexandria, VA
