Reviews

Bears witness to the contribution made by Japanese scholars, and Shinsuke Ando in particular, to English medieval and Renaissance studies. MEDIUM AEVUM

Significant contributions by an excellent group of scholars...an appropriate tribute to Shinsuke Ando, "a Japanese samurai spirit clad in Western learning". MLR
