73. [Blunden]. ‘The New Japan’. Review of Popcorn on the Ginza, by L. Crockett. TLS, 6 January 1950, p. 11.

Among the problems Blunden finds with Crockett and ‘other genial notebook-fillers in Japan’ is that they ‘seem hardly aware [either] of the antiquity of their undertaking’ or of previous English-language studies of the country, for ‘that such men as . . . [Basil Hall] Chamberlain [see D5] and . . . Nitobe [Inazô, see A22] ever penned a line about things Japanese apparently escapes her’.
