"Blue Nippon emerges from the author's mastery of jazz as a cultural medium, an in-depth knowledge of the scholarship on jazz as an intercultural and historical phenomenon, and from a concern to use cultural theory to come to terms with the specificity of the Japanese history of jazz."- Miriam Silverberg, author of Changing Song: The Marxist Manifestos of Nakano Shigeharu "This is a powerful gem of a book. Atkins's mixing of voices is wonderful and his scholarship impressive. Moreover, his complex argument is communicated in language that is straightforward, engaging, and compelling."- Christine Yano, University of Hawaii, Manoa
