Abstract

the Japanese terms for city (shi) and town (cho) might have been translated ¯ (pp. 17­18), especially with examples such as "Yonaguni-cho" being fol¯ lowed by "Yonaguni island" in parentheses, which is correct in terms of the island comprising the town but confusing in terms of the word "island" appearing to be a translation of the term "cho." ¯ There are several minor inconsistencies or typographical errors. A typographical error of Yaeyaman is given instead of Yaeyama on page 18; Osaka Industrial Exposition has different dates on two different pages (page 46 correctly notes 1903, while page 56 erroneously gives 1905); there is some confusion between the dates of Kishaba Eijun's work between page 51 and the bibliography; pages 91 and 92 translate the term ryuha as "lineage," ¯ whereas the term "school" or "tradition" might be clearer; on page 92, while making comparisons with other Japanese music, several misplaced apostrophes are given in the terms ongaku (music) on page 95 and angama on page ¯ 185; an erroneous and additional kanji is added at the end of Kishaba Eisei's name on page 99; the author notes that Tozan-ryu shakuhachi (end-blown ¯ flute) compositions are solo, but they
