Founded by Sophia University in 1938, Monumenta Nipponica is an
English-language, peer-reviewed journal that publishes outstanding
research and translations, as well as authoritative book reviews, in
premodern and modern Japanese studies.
With great sadness, we announce the death of Michael Cooper (1930-2018), former longtime editor of Monumenta Nipponica. He passed away on March 31, 2018, in Honolulu.
An obituary will follow in the next issue of MN and will be posted on this website.
