YCAPS Recommended Reading List

YCAPS members all often asked questions like, "What do I read to learn about the region?" In response to this interest, we have developed a member-sourced recommended reading and watch list. This is a "living" document with books, article, movie, or television series recommendations that relate to this region, Japanese history, security, economics, and culture. This document can be used for educating newcomers to the area, connecting like-minded individuals, and fostering a more holistic understanding of our dynamic region.

If you have any recommendations to share with the group, please review the link to our list below and follow the example format. Once you've compiled your recommendations please send an e-mail to so we can add them to the list. We look forward to hearing from you!
