A very detailed examination of Japan's JET Program. The focus is set on the evolution of the program as well as the specific cases that lead to more defined directives of the language teachers working with JET. Recommended for anyone who is interested in Japan's attempts at internationalization and also discovering what that term actually represents to the Japanese.
I absolutely love this book. Its funny, shocking, apocalyptic, tragic, and philosophically complex, as it surfaces several questions about the ethical nature of choice and free will. As I mentioned earlier to my friend Catie, I've talked to a lot of people who have hated this book and a lot of people who have found it amazing. I think it all depends on your dedication to TRYING to understand it. Anthony Burgess invented a whole new vernacular (a wierd mix of cockney,gypsie, and russian called Nadsat)for the characters of the book including the narrarator/protagonist, so it takes a few chapters to get used to the language in order to figure out exactly whats going on. I think you'll like it. Just stick with it and it'll redeem itself. When you do start reading it, my brothers and only friends, heres a link to a website that offers a nadsat glossary. It really helps. http://soomka.com/nadsat.html
